A small town in the settled borders of the Gyrewood, Havorstov is quite old. Though the population is only a tenth of what it once was, it still remains one of the more significant settlements in the area. Of particular significance here is the University, founded as a branch of the Royal University during the height of the Nerathi Empire. Though only the departments of Arcanum and Antiquities remain, the school still serves as outpost and repository for intellectual endeavors in the shattered remnants of civilization. In addition to the University, the town boasts a celebrated theatre, which functions as the civic center as well as staging various productions and concerts throughout the year. Since the last nobility died, Havorstov has been led by elected regents, the current being Lincoln Abraham.
