Located on the mouth of the River Penderbun, the city of Penwick is home to eight thousands souls, although it is large enough for twice that numbers. It was once one of the most powerful and wealthy cities in eastern Thac. It has fallen on hard times over the last century, being conquered and sacked no less than three times in the last hundred and fifty years. First by the Parthians in the Second Parthian War, then by the stone army of the Golem Master Larketh during the Thrall Wars, and finally only twenty years ago by the Pirate Warlord Eboneye. The lands although still fertile, have been in steady decline as the spirit of its people seems broken.
