The Heroes of Oryld
A small, respectable fishing town, inhabited with relatively sober, hard-working and amiable people. Saltmarsh has adequate facilities for justice and law-enforcement – debtors and bankrupts are dealt with particularly harshly.
Fishing is its main industry, but there are some tiny farms in the neighboring countryside. The town boasts a small weekly market to which traders are attracted from two larger towns, Burle and Seaton, each some twenty miles away (Burle inland to the northwest, Seaton along the coast to the east).
