Murder of Crows
Shostim is the second largest town in Rethem, and is the the primary royal castle of the current King of Rethem, Chafin III. The royal castle is seeing a great deal of work done on it, and when finished it will be the most impressive fortification in western Harn, but the town itself is not walled. Even though it is not walled, the town boats a population of well over, two thousand, and is the home of a modest Pamesani Arena. Shostim’s harbor is quite shallow, but has a reasonably busy port. Many mariners, especially those not from Rethem, would rather dock in Shostim than face the dangers of Golotha. Shostim has a prosperous Lia-Kavair which is tacitly ignored by civic authorities. There are churches of Agrik and Halea. There are no churches dedicated to Morgath, and such worship is discouraged, but not illegal.
