The Sword Coast

The Sword Coast, not to be confused with the Sword Coast North, stretches along the Sea of Swords from Waterdeep down to the river Chionthar at Baldur’s Gate in the south. The Sword Coast gets its name from the white cliffs that rise up sharply for hundreds of miles of the coastline, from Baldur’s Gate to the south and up to the River Dessarin in the north.

Officially, the coast line north of Waterdeep up to Icewind Dale is not part of the Sword Coast, though most folk simply use the term Sword Coast for this otherwise unnamed stretch of coast line.

A combination of roads and wagon tracks loosely connect the cities that stretch from Luskan in the north to Calimport in the south, passing through NeverWinter, Waterdeep, Baldur’s Gate and other ports along the way.

The Sword Coast has a rogue nature to it, not quite total anarchy and lawlessness, but close to it. All races interact in the Sword Coast, so seeing any race in many of the large cities is quite common and does not draw undo attention to a party of Brave Adventures.
