History of Belhaven
The Nerathi city of Garam Dal once stood where Belhaven stands now. Garam Dal was one of the first cities to fall before the hordes of the Ruler of Ruin, though some of the citizens were able to flee thanks to the foresight and direction of Zanril. Upon returning to their city after the horde passed by, they began to rebuild under the rule of Zanril, who found that his prior status as a minor lord barely compared to his new-found status as hero of the people and de facto leader. As more and more refugees from other parts of the world trickled in, Zanril knew he would have to do better than simply rebuilding the same city which fell before, and so set in place his plans for his new city of Belhaven.
