Yartar was a fortified city standing on the east bank of the River Dessarin. It was connected by a fortified bridge to a citadel on the west bank where the Evermoor Way (linking Triboar and Silverymoon crossed the Dessarin. It was a crossroads trading town, so it was always bustling with caravans entering and leaving its walls.[1][2]


In 1361 DR, Baron Alahar Khaumfros attempted to further a plot to provoke the Lords' Alliance (particularly Waterdeep) to war against Ruathym on behalf of the Kraken Society and Luskan.[2] He was foiled in his attempt when Liriel Baenre, Fyodor, and Caladorn Cassalanter discovered the plot.[3]


The ruler of Yartar, the Waterbaron, was elected for life. The Waterbaron in 1366 DR was Belleethe Kheldorna.[4] This position was previously held by Alahar Khaumfros, who had inherited the position from his father and who was later revealed to be the leader of the Kraken Society.[5] Khaufros employed the doppelganger Semmonemily to do his dirty work and had an elderly steward was named Cladence.[2]


Yartar was a member of the Lords' Alliance.[2]
