Nyth is a small city of 11,501 inhabitants (as of 1372 DR) in Thesk that relies on trade with its neighbouring settlements. It was once controlled by the independent city-state of Telflamm.[1]


Nyth takes its name from a will-o'-wisp that used to haunt the village. In a battle that ended with the deaths of all involved, a cabal of wizards defeated the will-o'-wisp and freed the city. As a result of this, wizards in Nyth are respected but considered to carry great misfortune.[1]
