No New Posts Castle Cousland

Castle Cousland acts as a home for Teyrn Cousland as well as a military base of operations for the Highever Teyrnir. Teyrn Fergus Cousland has taken over the rule of the land, though it has been hard for him to return to the castle since the deaths of his family and people at the hands of Rendon Howe.

No New Posts The Marketplace

The Highever marketplace sits in the center of the town. The open market is where farm goods, and other mobile vendors set up shop on a daily basis. While not as big as the marketplace in Denerim, it still boasts an exotic variety of goods due to sea trade. Small shops pepper the outer ring, as well as two inns for weary travelers: The Resting Laurel Inn and The Green Spears Inn. Both are named after the coat of arms that represent Highever and the Couslands. This area is always bustling and active, even well into the night.

No New Posts The Docks

One of the primary reasons that Highever continues to thrive is the amount of trade coming in through the docks. Though located on the Waking Sea, many importers will sail inland to have a chance at sailing their wares at Highever. It is also the primary supply point during the harsh winter months, bringing in extra foodstuff and providing travel for those who would rather not freeze in the snow. The area is a bit rough, as to be expected when it comes to constantly shifting sailors and tradesmen. A row of warehouses to store goods and supplies line the docks. Sarim's Luck Tavern sits on the way into Highever proper, allowing those weary from the sea to take a break and have a drink.

No New Posts Highever Alienage

Like most Alienage's before the Blight, this area was dilapidated and run down. The elves eeked by on menial jobs as servants and underpaid laborers. After the devastation left behind after Rendon Howe's occupation, this area is currently being rebuilt. Buildings have been purchased from previous landlords and given to the elves who live there, and there is rumor that the teyrn intends on pulling down the walls. There are still high tensions between the humans and elves of Highever, but greater opportunities have been made available. Elves have been welcome into the Highever town guard and the teyrn's army, as well as steps being made to improve the overall quality of living of its inhabitants. Some elves are even going into business for themselves within the Alienage, and one currently partners with a human for a steady business in the marketplace.

No New Posts The Southern Wall

Outside of Highever's southern wall, refugees have swarmed. Poorly constructed shacks and tents litter the landscape. They have fled lands that have remained blighted, villages that can no longer support population due to lack of fertile land, and are looking for a new home in Highever proper. The burgeoning population has made it difficult to find a place for them in Highever, and crime has started to become an issue. Teyrn Fergus and his staff have been working on a solution, but as time moves on things only seem to be getting worse.

Board Information & Statistics

Board Description
The birthplace of both the Warden and of Duncan of the Grey Wardens, Highever is one of two remaining Teyrnirs left in Ferelden. During the last Blight the long-ruling Cousland family was believed to be slaughtered to the last man, woman, and child, at the hands of Rendon Howe. Howe's crimes were revealed by one of the two surviving Couslands, Aedan. Fergus Cousland, upon his return from the Korcari Wilds after the Blight, was given back the Teyrnir and now rules over Highever as is his birthright. In the years since the Blight, Highever has seen rioting and a plague. Now refugees swarm outside the city's southern wall, bringing with them crime and housing concerns.
