From the Ashes of War
Population: Around 10.000
Dominant Boat Clan: The Whitewater Clan
Basten, located on the westernmost tributary of Lake Sanazala, has become increasingly militarized of late. The town's locally influential Whitewater boat clan sponsors several war bands. Setheda Sealcutter, leader of the largest war band, is paranoid about Haltan and Icewalker spies. Her war band inspects all trade caravans and canoes going in and out of Basten. Basten used to see traders from as far away as Crystal, but Setheda's harassment drives the merchants north to Haltan town such as River Blossom and Resplendent Peak.
