Penvost is completely walled, with a single gate granting access into the city that is guarded at all times. The guards are suspicious and stop everyone who draws near to the town. Once inside, the town is fairly small, with a round center square. A statue in the square features a giant hyena fighting a armored wizard, with the caption "Aelar defeats the monster Reirak."
At one point the town was home to an evil wizard, Reirak, who turned people into giant animals. The wizard was defeated by one of his victims, the half-elf turned giant hyena Aelar.
