Talonstadt is a refugee tent city on the eastern edge of the Dwendalian Empire, close to the border of Xhorhas and south of Bladegarden. It primarily consists of Ravenites refugees from Draconia, destroyed in 811 PD, who sought refuge in the Dwendalian Empire.

Though they were welcomed by the Empire and given refuge, they were restricted to the land offered after initial processing. The settlement was intended to be temporary but has since become more permanent, and it became known as Talonstadt.[3]

The refugees do not necessarily face discrimination from the Empire. However, there is worry that Draconian nobility hidden in the Dwendalian government seeks to destroy Ravenite presence in the Empire. As a result, the political relationship between Talonstadt, the Empire, and perceived Draconian allies are tense and complex.[4]

Talonstadt was the previous location of the Dragonborn messenger who met with Obann in the Overcrow Apothecary.[5]


82% of the shantytown is Dragonborn, with another 11% being human and 4% being halfling. Talonstadt has a population of 1,810 in 835 PD.[2]
