Mulmaster is a city that is located in the rugged area west of the Earthspur and Galena Mountains in the eastern part of the Moonsea region. For years Mulmaster was the shining beacon of hope in the Moonsea, opposing the fanatical Zhentarim. But those days did not last, as the Zhentarim finally managed to insert themselves into the ruling body of Mulmaster and take it over. Not long ago, the Mulmasterites rebelled against their Zhentarim rulers and took back control of the city. Unfortunately, all traces of the Zhentarim are far from gone, and the city suffered much while under their rule. The buildings nearest the docks are the most dilapidated and dangerous, full of poverty and rife with crime. The rich area of the city resides further up the mountainside, imposing its will over the rest of Mulmaster.
The lands surrounding Mulmaster are treacherous to cross and boast many dangers to its inhabitants. The majority of the land traffic through Mulmaster comes from the south, intersecting with Cormanthor, The Vast and the eastern region of the Dragon Reach. With the exception of Ironfang Keep, there are few settlements near Mulmaster in the eastern Moonsea.
The people of Mulmaster have re-established a system of noble houses here. The nobles in Mulmaster are called zor for males and zora for females. The head of a noble house, regardless of gender, is a lord.
