The village of Eveningstar is full of trees and gardens. It rises out of the surrounding farms "like an orchard with buildings in it" as some might say, dominated by the stonecliff and the prosperous farm of the spired temple of Saint Cuthbert in the mouth of the gorge. It is one of the beauty spots of the Realms that was left unharmed by the great cataclysm known for soft, glorious summer skies. Some say Saint Cuthbert himself stood over the village and protected it from harm during the cataclysm.
To Bards and Sages, the area is known as "The Evening Lands", but to the locals, that term is just so many fanciful "Highnose-Words", and evokes snorts of ridicule. The many woodlands and plains of the countryside provide homes for various game, pheasant, rabbits and deer. Boar were hunted locally, but are seldom seen south of the Stonecliff these days.
