Located in the Surlaenis Harbor, the Shadaer of Aesry Surlaenis'a is one of the first sights that sailors visiting the island experience. Not only is is the location where Denison's Pub resides, but it also hosts a number of other shops and facilities.

It is along the Shadaer where travelers aboard the Lybadel will be able to disembark from the vessel after its long journey from Riverhaven, and the nearby Harbor Docks also provides a location for visitors to set their first footsteps upon the island.

Strong smells of tar and ocean air waft on the wind coming from the harbor to the west. Vast expanses of white sand lie to the north and south, split in two by a wooden walkway rising up the slope of the island. You also see a narrow trail.
Obvious paths: north, west.

Salt-stained wooden boards echo with each traveller's footsteps. Houses of black oak are supported by platforms made of sturdy ironwood, each with an entire tree trunk driven into the sand below. The walkway stretches westward to the pier, and east to ascend the outer slope of the island.
Obvious paths: east, west.

Redolent with the salty scent of the sea, a fickle breeze ruffles the pennants hanging before the offices of affluent trading consortiums. The wooden boards of the walkway are cool after the day's heat. Shouts of sailors reveling in a night's shore leave come from the west.
Obvious paths: east, west.

A flurry of activity surrounds an elegant black building. The crest of the Traders' Guild is carved into the surface of the white birch doors that lead into the foyer. Across from the building, a wooden ladder leads down to the pier. You also see a door to a wooden warehouse.
Obvious paths: east, south.

The ale-stained walls and shattered glass windows of Denison's Pub dominate this stretch of the wooden walkway. A dented silver bell hangs above the remains of a bench broken in a brawl. To the west, a wooden ladder leads down to the pier.
Obvious paths: north, south.

Carved white birch columns support the blue tile roof of a prosperous shop on the eastern side of the street. A sign hangs from the shop's tiled awning, painted with the words, "Bariyu's Water Supplies." Across from the building, a wooden ladder leads down to the pier. You also see a low-thatched hut.
Obvious paths: north, south.

A dingy shack perches precariously above the ocean waves. Strands of seaweed hang from the front of the shack, drying in the sun. On the far side of the house, a rickety ladder reaches down to the dark sand of the beach. You also see a cramped-looking shed.
Obvious paths: north.

Weathered by the sun and the salty sea air, the wooden pier stretches to the south. Ships of all types anchor for the night, though some small boats fish near the dangerous shoals at the harbor mouth. You also see a wooden ladder, the Lybadel's schedule and an ebony slate.
Obvious paths: south.

Ocean spray soaks the wooden boards of the pier. Cloaked in shadows, the main dock of the island extends to the west, surrounded by the forms of sleeping ships. The sound of drunken laughter comes from the direction of the wooden ladder that leads to Denison's Pub.
Obvious paths: north, south, west.

A few small boats are anchored away from the pier. The waters below are alive with scores of fish that come to feed off of the trash that is dumped into the harbor each night. The reek of decaying garbage rises from the water. You also see a wooden ladder.
Obvious paths: north.
