Mistledale was one of the regions that made up the Dalelands. It consisted mainly of a grassy vale in the midst of the elven forest, allegedly created by a falling star. This was among the more peaceful of the Dales, although as of 1372 DR, drow incursions from the forest began causing serious problems.

GeographyEdit

Mistledale covered a large stretch of land, reaching over 100 miles east to west and roughly 30 miles wide. Flatter than the neghbouring dales; the land was an area of rolling plains and open grasslands since the early days of Cormanthyr.[5]

Geographic featuresEdit

DefensesEdit

The first line of defense in Mistledale were the Riders of Mistledale who patrolled the dale and protected the people from outside incursions.[5] These Riders were supplemented by a local and well-armed militia, who numbered about 200 active members and at least 600 more that can be made available, if needed. Both the Riders of Mistledale and the militia were based in Ashabenford[3]

Due to the widely spread settlements of dale, each hamlet was equipped with special bells that could raise messages of alarm or inquiry with nearby settlements. These were especially useful in the early morning fog that can fill the valley.[1]

TradeEdit

Situated along the well-travelled Moonsea Ride[6], many of the dale's farmers made their way to Ashabenford where mechants from Cormyr and the Moonsea often stopped to buy produce and trade.[3]

HistoryEdit

Mistledale's claim to fame was the defeat of Lord Lashan Aumersair in 1356 DR (with the help of Shadowdale and others).[7]

During the Time of Troubles, the Riders of Mistledale were even able to rebuff an army from Zhentil Keep. However, they seem unable to combat the incursions of the local drow who are steadily growing in power.[1]
