It Started With a Kidnapped Pig...
One of the more pleasant looking towns in the Dessarin Valley thanks to its many trees, Beliard is home to many cattle ranchers whose herds roam the hills around it, particularly to the east. The village features a public well, and is home to a tanner, a smith, some horse dealers and trainers who keep extensive stables, and a popular inn called the Watchful Knight.
The inn was originally named for an inoperative helmed horror that stood in the common room, but the creature mysteriously vanished some years ago. The innkeeper went missing shortly thereafter.
Beliard is home of many retired mercenaries, bodyguards, and adventurers. After several failed attempts, bandits and brigands avoid attacking or raiding Beliard openly. But because of these retired folk, rumours persist of adventurers and mercenaries having stashed their life savings in various places around the village. So far this has appeared to be just wishful thinking.
