Orlumbor (pronounced: /ɔːrˈlʌmbɔːror-LUM-bore[1]) was a small rocky barren island city-state in the Sea of Swords.[1]


The settlement was located due west of the Trollbark Forest between Daggerford and Baldur's Gate and 300 miles south of the free city of Waterdeep, on the Sword Coast. Few people visited the city, in part because of its treacherous harbor.[2]

Despite its size, the island-nation was independent and influential, in part due to its skilled, in-demand shipwrights.[3]
