Dorden is a small human fishing town in the north-east, east of Underpass. It sits on the eastern shore and is sometimes a stop-over for smaller ships traveling south to Easthaven or Blackbay.
Recently, Dorden was seized by King Alvar's army. Its leader, Baron Carlisle was killed along with his wife and guards, though his son, Jared, was said to have escaped into the woods.
There is a keep on the hill above the city, which serves as the seat of local government.
The only inn in town is called The Scurvy Serpent. Bjorn the fisherman hangs out there.
The nearby woods are commonly said to be inhabited by abnormally active fae spirits, as is the case with many of the woods in the north.
