“Asbravn is the central marketplace for the farmers of Sunset Vale, the rich farmlands between the Reaching Wood and the Sunset Mountains. The town resists Zhent raids from Darkhold and more subtle pressures, thanks to the services of a volunteer militia known as the Riders in Red Cloaks, whose numbers are often supplemented by friendly or retired adventurers. The town is a popular caravan stop for all but Zhent merchants, who can buy provisions but may not spend the night.
Beneath the town’s well-kept farms and orderly market, catacombs left by a previous civilization of semi-nomadic horse riders sometimes turns up odd treasures. For a town erected upon the remnants of old tombs, Asbravn is sunny and relatively untroubled by undead." – From the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting 3rd Edition.
