Yhaunn was a coastal city of Sembia built on an old quarry site.
The city was built on the site of an ancient quarry. Many great buildings in Selgaunt, Saerloon, Westgate, Alaghôn, Cimbar, and Velprintalar were built with Yhauntan stone.
In 1385 DR, during the Spellplague. the cliffs that surrounded the city broke away and became earthmotes, in the process killing tens of thousands of inhabitants.
The shadovar masters of Sembia helped the city recover and by 1479 DR it had even more residents than before the Spellplague.
