Population: 32,300 permanent residents, about 1,000 travellers at any given time.
Races present: Pretty much any civilized race. Mostly humans, dwarves, and orcs, though there are plenty of halflings, elves, gnomes, goblins, and half-breed races.
Persons of note, Primary: Lord Nasher Alagondar, ruler of Neverwinter; he makes his home in Castle Never. He is a devout worshipper of Tyr, and as zealous a protector of his beloved city as any one could meet.
Persons of note, Secondary: Ophala Cheldarstone, head of the Moonstone Mask; she lives in one of the more secluded rooms of the inn/brothel. She was formerly an adventurer with Lord Nasher, and is a spellcaster of no small talent.
Places of note: The Halls of Justice, a great temple to Tyr; a place of gathering, of healing, and, perhaps, a place to find the odd quest or mission. The Moonstone Mask, an inn/brothel in the City Core; a place to rest one's feet, chat with one of the most learned individuals in the city (see Ophala Cheldarstone, above). The Trade of Blades, a mercenary hostel/emporium; if one with combat prowess wishes to find work, they need go no further.
