Fifty miles north of Magnimar, along the Lost Coast Road, the town of Sandpoint nestles in a natural harbor among the cliffs. Protected by the Variasian Gulf on the west, the Turandarok River on the south and east, and by a low stone wall on the north, Sandpoint is a quiet, welcoming safe haven to any who travel along the Lost Coast.
Today, Sandpoint is a thriving community. Many industries, including fishing, lumber, farming, hunting, brewing, shipbuilding, tanning, and glassmaking, have boomed, luring skilled laborers from as far as Korvosa and Riddleport to relocate here. Yet Sandpoint’s location on the Lost Coast has also recently drawn settlers of another bent. As explorers and adventurers begin to piece together the fragments of ancient Thassilon’s influence over the region so long ago, Varisia’s Thassilonian ruins have acted as a magnet for such lore- seekers . The towering ruins overlooking Sandpoint, known as the Old Light, , is no exception, and a few of Sandpoint’s recent arrivals are more interested in this ruin than anything else.
Throughout its history, Sandpoint has been thankfully free of major dis asters . Every winter brings its share of strong storms, yet the natural harbor, sandbars, and cliffs do a remarkable job of blunting the force of wind and wave, leaving the town relatively unscathed. Elders in town spin yarns of a few really big storms, but apart from the town’s somewhat rocky beginning with local Varisians, only two events have really qualified as disasters: the Chopper and the Sandpoint Fire. These two events, occurring in such close and recent proximity as they have, are generally lumped together as the “Late Unpleasantness ,” even though the incidents didn’t have any obvious links. Natives of Sandpoint are reluctant to talk about either event, preferring to look ahead to brighter times.
