Hallein Town is a tiny settlement located east of Vigil. It is located at the foot of a high tarn rising from the shores of Lake Hallensee and the access to it by land is almost impossible. Hallein Town is the home of the workers for the salt mines in the Virlych hills and provide a vital trade good for the rest of the nation.
In previous generations, salt was transported by mule along the river. This route was eventually abandoned because of Kaltia, a vile undead dwarf who returns to Hallein Town during the winter months to menace the salt-bearers. Despite being slain several times, Kaltia continues her haunts unabated.
