Pallon is a port town on the River Dawn. It is the main connection to the southern Vale for the mines and logging camps of the north. Ore and timber is loaded onto river boats here and taken south to the portage at Valten Falls. From there it sails up the Rookwater to Highforge or south to Iciren or Port Gerden and on to the Empire itself. Pallon has little in the way of industry. Most buildings in this town are homes or warehouses that cater to the dockside trade. There are no smelteries or sawmills here, goods are all processed downriver or in the Empire.
