Easthaven

“The area of Easthaven is but one of many tiny, frigid villages clinging to survival. They endure, but it is a hard life, and the only war that comes to Easthaven is the battle against the elements.”   — Everard, Trusted Sword, Order of the Broken Blade, Easthaven, Eleint, Year of the Cold Soul, 1281 DR.

Easthaven is one of the Ten Towns of Icewind Dale.

Geography

The town is located on the southern shore of Lac Dinneshere on the east end of the Eastway that leads to Bryn Shander. Originally just a small hamlet, the building of the Eastway trade road to Bryn Shander proved to be a boon to the village which became the fastest-growing community in the region with a fishing fleet rivaling that of Caer-Dineval.

A breakwater protects most of the piers that reached out into Lac Dinneshere.
