The Dusk Road was a moderately traveled trade road in the Western Heartlands of Faerûn. The Dusk Road started at Elturel[1] in the Fields of the Dead near the River Chionthar and headed northeast, eventually forming a great arc around the Reaching Woods until it ended at Iriaebor (also on the north bank of the Chionthar, but much farther upstream) at the west end of Trader's Road.[2] Along the way, it crossed the east fork of the Trade Way at Triel,[1] the little village of Hardbuckler,[3] and Hill's Edge in the Sunset Vale.[1] It continued on to Corm Orp,[4] and bent south[note 1] to pass through Hluthvar,[5] then met the Uldoon Trail at Asbravn,[6] and finally linked with Trader's Road at Iriaebor.[2]

NotesEdit

  1. There is a discrepancy in the maps and description for the location of Corm Orp relative to Hill's Edge. Volo's Guide to the Sword Coast says it is southeast of Hill's Edge (see p. 175) and the maps back this up (see p. 187 and page 5 of The Forgotten Realms Atlas). However, the map from the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting 3rd edition shows that it is northeast of Hill's Edge.
