Beregost is a town on the Coast Way, halfway between Baldur’s Gate and Amn.

Beregost began as a small farming village, founded to support a school of magic that has longs since been destroyed. Today, the town is dominated by The Song of the Morning, a large temple of Lathander. The town is a major way-stop for merchant caravans, and contains several inns.

While Beregost’s offical government is a five-person town council, in reality, the town is run by the high priest of Lathander. It is policed by the Flaming Fist from Baldur’s Gate.
