Corruption in Icewind Dale
The hardworking, humble, and honest folk of Lonelywood cover up a sinister fact: the regions most ruthless and shady characters tend to settle here. Though many strike off for Icewind Dale to get away from their past, Lonelywood’s isolation and the cover of its thick coniferous forests provides an ample safe-haven for underhanded dealings. Still, the frozen north is an unforgiving place, and cooperation is the key to survival. Hardly similar to Luskan or Calimport, Lonelywood may be full of thieves and cutthroats, but murder and conspiracy (at least between residents) is rare.
Being one of the few major sources of timber in the region, Lonelywood prides itself on its timber industry, but is no less active in the fishing trade.
