An outpost on the west coast, just south of the Misty March and situated at the base of Dordugaun-Mar. Populated largely by dragonborn, tieflings, and halflings, the town serves as a trading post for the civilized but unsettled races who make their home in the thick deciduous forests nearby: lizardfolk, gnolls, kobolds, and elves all come to trade obsidian weapons, gems, wild game, shells, river and ocean fish. Metallic ores are scrounged here and carried to one of the magma sinks on the slopes of Dordugaun-Mar, and melted into crude ingots which are hoarded and used as currency to purchase goods from the outside world. Worshippers of Tiamat and Imix dominate the local religious culture and social hierarchy.
Because Chester is so difficult to reach coming overland, a handful of guides make a living in nearby settlements showing people how to get to and from the outpost. To make camp in any unsettled area near Chester is to invite trouble; one or more tribes are certain to lay claim to the land and jealously guard it against the possibility that your settlement might be permanent.
