Saerloon was a Sembian city known for its gothic architecture, peppered throughout with gargoyles and other embellishments, and for its mercantile activity, seasoned by thievery and intrigue.[2]

GovermentEdit

Saerloon was nominally ruled by a merchant prince, who ultimately served the merchant council.[4][3]

TradeEdit

Saerloon was a busy shipping hub.[1]

DefensesEdit

Around 7,000 helms patrolled the city and surrounding area. In 1358 DR, Lady Merelith led these guards.[3]

HistoryEdit

Saerloon

A map of Saerloon in 1358 DR.

Saerloon inherited its distinctive architecture from the Chondathan colonists who established Saerloon as their beachead in the area.[2]

In the early days of Sembia, the port was dubbed Saerloon after the master merchant Saer led Sembia to prosperity and wealth.[5]

In 1478 DR, Haelta Johannes was made the new Lord Govenor of Saerloon. With the backing of her Netherese masters she began bringing Saerloon under control by exterminating any worship of deities besides Shar.[1]
