Gildenglade was a settlement in the forest area at the foot of the Aphrunn Mountains in Turmish. This city was the second-largest within Turmish, composed of dwarves, elves, and half-elves living together in harmony. Its economy was based primarily upon woodcutting and mining.
The elves of the community served as rulers, their skill with preservation allowing them to handle negotiations with the Emerald Enclave. They also were used as a woodcutting force, but they enjoyed their work and were not mistreated.  Dwarves of the city mainly concentrated on mining the unusually pure veins of gold underneath Gildenglade. Half-elves served as the physical labor force for their kin's forrestry efforts. 
Given the amount of wealth in Gildenglade, it is not surprising that tales of treasure had arisen over the years. By chance, a few of these rumors had been given credence. The most recent occurred when a visitor to Gildenglade followed a phantom who traversed the streets with sacks of gold. The specter turned out to be a crimson death, with the greedy tourist quickly becoming the creature's meal. Other crimson deaths had been seen roaming the area around the forested settlement.
