Havenward, known commonly as “the Ward” is a city on the tip of the mainland, bordering the iceflows of Walmak Island. Part of the Weizem River Alliance, it is the largest fishing industry on the mainland side of the North Cap. The population is approx. 6,700.
Havenward hosts the annual Rourkan Ice Trek, which takes place in the middle of Deepwinter when the ice is at its thickest. The town is also known as the begginning and end point to the Havenward Merchants Trade Caravan, which begins with a celebration the night of Tarsakh 25 which lasts all night, and a sendoff and celebration the next morning. The caravan returns sometime around Eleasias 20 after it has travelled an estimated 24,000 miles. This Caravan brings great wealth, cultural, racial and social diversity to this remote city. As a result, Havenward is a stable, economic marker in the high north. Havenward was the home town of Yakemon the mage, an old paraplegic who became famous for his exploration of the north and in particular his publication of “The Ghormack Assessment”, the only known first hand account of the life of a Ghormack.
