Soubar (pronounced: /ˈsbɑːrSOO-bar[2]) was a small village on the Trade Way, south of the Boareskyr Bridge.[1]


The population was highly variable, shrinking to an armed camp in the winter with the decline of caravan traffic. Soubar had no formal government, which led to a lawless culture full of brigands and ruffians.[1]


In the Year of the Dragon, 1352 DR, there were rumors of a barbarian horde threatening Soubar. The paladin knight Priam Agrivar planned to journey to the settlement, but was interrupted.[3]


The Purple Flame operated in Soubar in 1358 DR.[4]
