The Omens of Talum-Kai
Hevestel is a small Freishan city that serves mostly as a point of safe harbor for traveling ships and some lumber exports but has a larger reputation than many locals feel it deserves.
Throughout most of Thraeshae, Hevestel, is a household name, oft heard at the beginning of fairytales. "It happened in Hevestel, the city of monsters", is a phrase that pricks the ears of children and adults alike. It is clear sign, to any who can hear, a good story is about to be told.
While it is true that Hevestel is nestled up against the snowy edge of the White Forest, the locals know that most of the stories are complete bunk. That hasn't stopped them from basking in their mythology, though. This is evidenced by [[Crastor's Day]], their yearly festival that celebrates the "Monsters" at their border and their famous protector of legend [[Crastor The Mender]], and the rather large monster hunting society that helps lead visitors on "hunts" and gives tours of the surrounding landscape.
