Deliverance was the first settlement founded by the the group sent from the Western Kingdom by King Galfond the Spear, commonly referred to as the Spearhead. The settlement was a long-abandoned keep that had become occupied by first a group that revered the Great Stag Lord and then a group of rag-tag mercenaries, who became eventual citizens.
Once occupied, a number of citizens from the supplier town Mott’s Post came to settle in Deliverance as well.
The exact origins of the name Deliverance have been lost to time. Some have claimed that the Spearhead was trying to deliver the Peaks from ignorance. Others that they were trying to deliver the Godfist from the clutches of the Baselanders and Stranders. Still a few claim that they were really nothing more than delivery people.
