After escaping from the goblin fortress, the party is led to this market town by Balin Ironshield, who says he has been there before. It is a medium size town, where the largest establishment is the large Merchants Guild, who control almost every aspect of life in Adureth. The town grew up around the original keep, that was built there to keep watch on the Orc tribes that frequent the area, after a peace treaty was signed. However, the army has long since moved on, to further the conquests of the King. Prominent residents of the town include Dennis Goldentongue, the famous bard, who can often be seen at the local inn, The Black Arrow.
