Luskan, also known as the City of Sails, is a port city at the mouth of the River Mirar on the Sword Coast North. Luskan, despite the presence of the Ten Towns is considered by many to be civilization’s farthest reach.
Sammereza Sulphontis said that traders in Luskan “always wear furs, haughty expressions, and ready swords.” Luskanite traders are always alert and well-armed. The people of Luskan always tend to be tense and paranoid — rightly so, because of the dangers of the tough city — and they are extremely prejudiced against non-humans. In fact, few non-humans are allowed past the city gates.
