Guilmarl was a series of ruins,[2] formerly a large city, located in southern Dambrath.[1]


Guilmarl was the southernmost city in Dambrath located along the coast on the Great Sea. Violent storms assaulted the city for the entire three-month rainy season. Many of the wealthier citizens opted to winter in calmer cities.[1]

The close presence of the Great Swamp of Rethild to the west made Guilmarl a hot and stuffy place to live.[1]


Many pirate and merchant ships harbored in Guilmarl outside of the rainy season, using the city as a launching point for Zakhara, Halruaa, and beyond. The main factor keeping the city from fading away was its superb pearl beds, allowing at least half of the population to earn a living revolving around the pearl trade.[1]

Some time between 1367 and 1372 DR the city was destroyed and overrun by many lizardfolk and a large fang dragon.[2]


Fewer crinti lived here compared to other cities in Dambrath. Most despised the scent of the Great Swamp and chose to live elsewhere.[1] After 1372 DR no crinti lived in the city.
