Archenbridge was the capitol of Archendale and the most fortified city in the Dalelands.[5]

Volo's Guide to the Dalelands

This busy town of more than 1,200 folk is the center of Archendale. A cluster of stone buildings with slate or tile roofs, Archenbridge has always outgrown its successively larger walls, sprawling along the overland road that its bridge carries across the River Arkhen. Its center is as cramped and as bustling as a ward of Waterdeep, with wagons rumbling up and down its cobbled streets at all hours and every building rising at least three floors above ground level. (A typical Archenbridge squarehouse has a shop or storage cellar below ground, a shop at street level, offices or rental storage above that, and one or more floors of residences crowning all.) Excepting the grand houses of nobles and retired gentry, only Essembra in all the Dales boasts private buildings of such height.

Landmarks

The River Arkhen flows swiftly through town, powering both a grist mill and a sawmill. The grist mill is Hewards Mill, operated by the greedy and uncouth Salath Heward, and the sawmill is Sandans Sawmill, run by Sandan himself, an always-calm retired Ride captain who notices everything and works with slow, deliberate care. The cold, swift Arkhen also affords fishing and boating pleasure to the wealthy folk who dwell in the newly built manor houses along the River Way, the town's most exclusive district. At least one of these manor houses - Whiteturrets, owned by Marler Chandrar of Fairwind Street - can be rented by the tenday or the month by exclusive guests or for parties. (A tenday costs 50 gp per person in winter and 75 gp per head between Greengrass and the Festival of the Moon. A month costs 120 gp or 300 gp, with the same seasonal variance.)

These grand houses are separated from the sprawl of the ever-expanding town by the trees of Grave Hollow, a glen with a grass-covered barrow hill at its heart. The Hollow is used by citizens of all ages who like to dine at highsun under the open sky and at night by young Arkhenfolk in love -or those who wish to conduct secretive business. (Be warned: The Swords send soft-footed undercover agents patrolling the Hollow at night to listen and learn all they can.)

Rental paddocks (for caravan assembly and the use of visiting merchants) and the market field also restrict the growth of the town. Increasingly, businesses whose trade requires a large workplace and storage area, such as wagonmakers and stonemasons, are maintaining only offices in town and locating their main shops in walled compounds just within sight of the town. They trust, as the lordlings of the manor houses along River Way do, in the readiness of the town garrison in the frowning stone keep of Swordpoint. This old fortress, the largest castle in the Dales, overlooks the town and the West Road leading up into the farmlands and thence the length of the Dale to distant White Ford.

Two large temples lie parallel to each other in the heart of Archenbridge, almost facing each other: the Bounty of the Goddess, dedicated to Chauntea, and the Glory of the Morning, consecrated to Lathander. The homes and shops of the haughty citizens of Archenbridge crowd around these two tall, spired buildings. The only other notable place of worship in Archenbridge is the Shrine of Swords. which honors Tempus. It stands in the forecourt of Swordpoint.

Several merchant costers are based in town, and every other shopkeeper in Archenbridge has a secret source or three in Sembia. Somewhere in town the traveler can find almost anything.
