Puppets of the Shadow
Rhyl is a town that lies on a river of the same name in the eastern end of the Rhylwood. The settlement is mostly human, with a scattering of elves, half-elves, and halflings. Dwarves were once common in the days when the Hall of the Forgesinger prospered, but now are very scarce, as are dragonborn or tieflings.
The standard trade in Rhyl is woodcutting and woodcraft. Fine timbers from the Rhylwood are shipped downriver to Faldale where they fetch excellent prices. A number of furniture makers and fine carpenters naturally have cropped up in the town as well, making it a good stop for any merchants who trade in such things.
Recently, Rhyl had a sudden invasion of undead, which drastically reduced the town's living population and paralyzed the community until they were liberated by a party of adventurers.
