Thw large town of Daskaran lies in the foothills of the Starpeaks mountains and once was the capital of the nation of Thrane. However, in 696 YK a great fire destroyed much of the town just prior to winter. Not having time to rebuild, most of the population of the town fled to nearby Flamekeep, and never returned. The town survived, but in a diminished capacity, it is known for little beyond its neat cobbled streets and quiet pine forested hills.
It was the scene of some battles in the Last War, including an attempt by the Iron Band, an elite Karrn unit of soldiers, to take the town in 976 YK, before they were ordered to pull back by Regent Moranna
