Deastok is an affluent city in the Dwendalian Empire's Truscan Vale. It is the hometown of Taryon Darrington and the base of the Darrington Brigade. It is also the sister city to Kamordah.


Deastok is located on a hill just north of the Cyrengreen Forest and is surrounded by farmland. The town has regular guard patrols that march around the city. The guards are armed with crossbows and some patrol on horseback. The farmland surrounding the town is segmented with different colored fences and is generally well organized. Deastok itself is protected by stone walls.[2] Each entrance into the town has a large metallic gate which is closed in case of an attack.

Castle Lorelei is not far from Deastok.[3]
