Ember is a village north of Neverwinter on the outskirts of the Duskwood forest. After the war with Luskan, territory shifts landed the village on the Luskan side of the border.

The player must pass through here at the end of Act I in pursuit of the githyanki. At the beginning of Act II however, the player is accused of having massacred the village by the Luskan ambassador. After being granted the rank of squire to avoid extradition, the player must search through the village, Port Llast, and the Duskwood forest for evidence to clear his/her name.

Underneath the village well is a cavern network, inhabited by a relatively peaceful tribe of goblins having trouble with a nest of giant spiders. The cavern is also the home of an intelligent spider named Kistrel.
