Battledale was one of the dales in the Dalelands. Despite its name earned long ago, it was one of the more peaceful vales in the 14th & 15th centuries DR. Even though Battledale was one of the largest dales, it was also one of the least populated.[1] Until 1422 DR, its capital was Essembra.[2]

Important Locations Edit


On 7 Elesias 1373 DR, the red dragon Thraxata started many fires in Battledale, causing a large amount of woodland to be destroyed.[3][4] In 1422 DR Battledale came under attack from Sembians allied with Netheril which forced evacuation of Essembra.[1]
