Population: 6,700; another 1,000 live within a five-mile radius of the town itself. The people of Brindol are mostly humans, half-elves, and dwarves. The town’s population swells by several hundred whenever some connected halfling clans known as “the river people” are in town.
Government: A town has a council, two-thirds of whom are hereditary landlords and the re- mainder of whom are guildmasters from the city’s important trade guilds. Lord Warden Harrik Orennais the public face of the council and commander of the city militia.
Defense: The city has 200 soldiers under arms at all times, with about one-quarter on duty at any given time. In times of crisis, the Lord Warden has access to another 200 well-equipped but poorly trained soldiers by calling up the militia.

History: Brindol, and the cities of this entire valley, were attacked relentlessly by a group of Hobgoblins known as the Red Hand of Doom a little over a decade ago. Since the defeat of the Red Hand, things have returned to a more peaceful state, but there is still a bit of an undercurrent of uneasiness that lingers over most of this valley.
