The Sword Coast, not to be confused with the Sword Coast North, was the region in western Faerûn that lay along the coast Sea of Swords[1] and extended inward into to the vale.[2] It was bordered by the Delimbiyr Vale in the North,[3] and to the south by the merchant nation of Amn.[1]

Some say the Sword Coast took its name from the white cliffs that rose up sharply for hundreds of miles along the coastline between the River Dessarin and Baldur's Gate.[citation needed] Traveling author Volothamp Geddarm attributed the regions name to its dangerous inhabitants, both humanoid and bestial.[1]

The port metropolis was the hub of trade for the Sword Coast.[4] While it always flourished, by 15th century DR it had become the most powerful city in all of Faerûn.[5]
Beregost
This large trading town, a day's travel off the Coast Way, was a popular stopping point for merchants traveling between Amn and the Gate.[6] By the 1360's it had become a major mercantile center in the region.[7]
