Mustment is a small but old human settlement on the border of the Swallowed Lands. It sits on the Strand, a river which flows from swamplands to the north and runs westward to the coast. The town’s buildings are mostly stone, and the streets are muddy and damp. Mosses and molds grow on everything, giving the town it’s titular smell.
- The Three Walls
A crumbling tavern where the locals occasionally gather to drink and make merry. The back wall of the building has collapsed, providing a view of the latrine pits and the Strand flowing slowly by. Owned and operated by Totan. On the menu are boiled rabbit stew (1 silver), fresh trout (2 silver), and a chunk of hard cheese made locally (2 silver). A breakfast of eggs, potatoes and ham is available for 2 silver. A mug of ale is 5 copper, made fresh with water from the Strand and brewed by Wilhelm at the church.
- The Three Floors
A two-story inn run by Cerys. The rooms are small, but clean. Going rate is 1 gold a night, or 6 gold for a week. Baths are 2 silver.

- The Old Hag’s Shop
