Shussel served was fishing town, however it used to be a mining outpost at some point of its history. It had its own supply of iron from nearby mines, but by 1357 DR the supply was dwindling. The fields to the north of the city had been overfarmed and turned to sandy, poor conditions as a result.
As of 1357 DR, Shussel was poor community whose resources had been overused. Its port was small and not much frequented.
In 1370 DR, in an event called "the Vanishing", a mysterious fog descended upon the city and overnight, ninety percent of the city's inhabitants vanished. The sudden underpopulation and abundance of homes brought squatters and bandits. The city was later conquered by the Mulhorandi, that used its port to bring in supplies for their war effort against Unther.
