Welcome to Prospero
Our modest town in the Commonwealth was built during the reign of King Ballerd the Bold. Back then it was little more than a respite for Lord Kaiden’s garrison, on their way to into the badlands beyond the ruins of Wyverngate.

The Town was built at the crossroads of the Wivern Road and the Dwarf King’s Highway. The road South leads into the winding trails of the Brass Pines. North carves through the Carrion Swamps, and beyond that, Wyverngate and the Dragon Peaks. West winds through rolling hilltop country and the Dwarf Barrows. East crosses the Frostfall River.
- Candle-Light Square – the central market square from which the town derived it’s name.
- The Dwarf Gate – The east gate, so named for the ancient st_Jade_ carved with the familiar bearded warrior motifs ascribed to the dwarves.
- The Midnight Cap – The finest inn in town. Their food is always good, and their serving wenches are always the most pleasing to look at.
Temples & Shrines
- The Burning Hall – The musty timber Hall dedicated to Lambent, celebrated god of the Candle Fair.
- Tabernacle of Lords – This shrine pays homage to the rest of the pantheon of gods who protect the universe.
- The Elf Tree – The elves of long ago once worshipped these trees and were said to draw mystic power from them. Its bough is golden in color and its leaves a deep copper color.
Beyond Candle Fair
- The Brass Pines – Noted for their rust colored needles, these forests are home to many beasts and animals that have no fear of man or spirit.
- The Carrion Swamp – Blasted and terrible swampland with a single crumbling road winding through it. It is a place of death and evil spirits.
- The Dwarf Barrows – a haunted hill country rife with dwarven catacombs and the forbidden treasure that is said to reside within.
- Wyverngate – This walled city has known many masters. Wild beasts stalk the decayed streets and ghosts haunt its castles. Few dare brave there.
