From the Ashes of War
Population: ca. 8.000
Dominant Boat Clan: The Graystone Clan
Shadowholt lies opposite the Black Chase; most Linowan consider it more or less their southern border. Here the Linowan build in brick as much as wood, and the local clay fires to a gray-black hue. Trade with Sijan and other southern cities makes the people prosperous. Shadowholt also forms the jumping-off place for expeditions downriver to the Scavenger Lands and the sea. A bend in the river and a slough leading to a nearby lake supplies excellent harborage, attracting Guild and other ships to the town.
Despite Shadowholt's utility, though, the Linowan consider it an unlucky and unhappy city: people go there to seek their fortune, but few stay longer than a few years.
