The town of Red Larch was a waystop on the Long Road seven days north of Waterdeep, and was located at the intersection of three trails. One trail led to the Bargewright Inn, another to Kheldell, and the third ran into the hills to derelict, monster-infested keeps. The town was named for a stand of red larch trees that were chopped down about the time of the town's founding.
Red Larch was known for its nourishing, though otherwise un-noteworthy food, called crumblecake. Crumblecakes were made into moist loaves from nuts, chickpea mash, chopped roots and greens, turkey and wildfowl scraps, all baked together.
As of around 1366 DR, the town had a militia of around 100 skilled archers, mostly younger boys, who train by keeping predators away from the poultry farm, Mhandyvver's Poultry. This led raiding parties amongst the orcs to avoid the town.
In addition to what is listed below, as of around 1366 DR, there was a farmer's market and a cattle market.
