Feb 7th 2023
Location: At the mouth of the Lanumaug River on Lapit Bay
Population (approx.): 2,300
Brief: In the past, Lapit Bay was home to a number of small fishing-centered settlements scattered along its shores. As Noldrune shed the old traditions of the Ta’arnan Empire, the Noble Houses of the City-State latched on to Lanumouth and its long beaches of white sands as the new “it” destination, being equadistant to Belladorn to the west and Far Harbor to the south. Locals and fishing fleets were displaced to lesser settlements around the bay, replaced by hotels and amusements for the rich and powerful. Today Lanumouth is famous for the summer regatta season featuring numerous races with associated society events, gambling and intrigue.
Geography: Lanumouth sits on the east bank of the Lanumag River where it enters the bay. The town is centered about a long bayfront boardwalk, dotted with statues of past Barons and Baronesses, with numerous upper-class hotels and attractions overlooking the beaches. Numerous docks, slips and piers dot the riverbank. The hills outside of town are home to expansive manor homes owned by Noble houses major and minor including Houses Claid and Macad. In between are streets full of taverns, restaurants, entertainments, shops and other vendors
