Woodhelm is a village in north central Breland in the middle of the Dragonwood at the banks of the Dagger River. The village’s main industry is timber. The cut lumber in the Dragonwood and ship the logs downriver to Galethspyre to be processed for wood.
One of the largest settlements in the Dragonwood, Woodhelm is a prosperous farming community and caravan stopover located just north of Glyphstone Keep on the north shores of the Dagger River. Orchards of apple and pear trees follow the river’s winding shores, while broad grain fields and farmlands surround the town for miles in all directions.
Population 6,700; another 1,000 live within a five-mile radius of the town itself. The people of Woodhelm are mostly human, half elf, and dwarf. The town’s population swells by several hundred whenever some connected halfling clans known as “the river people” are in town.
Government The town has a council; two-thirds are hereditary landlords and the rest are guildmasters from the city’s important trade guilds. Lord Warden Harrik Orenna is the public face of the council and commander of the city militia.
Defense The city has 200 soldiers under arms at all times, with about one-quarter on duty at any given time. In times of crisis, the Lord Warden has access to another 200 well-equipped but poorly trained soldiers by calling up the militia.
