Black Company Wiki

Needle is a coastal city in the northwesterly region of the northern continent mentioned in Shadows Linger. Although elements of the Black Company passed through the city during an overland trek from Meadenvil in the north to Chimney to the south, no specifics about Needle were detailed by Croaker the historian in his Annals.

According to the Meadenvil country innkeeper, Needle is about 200 miles south of the city of Shaker. He also guessed that Needle is either 180 or 280 miles north of Tagline.

The first group of Black Company men to pass through Needle included Croaker, One-Eye, Goblin, Silent, Otto, Hagop, and Pawnbroker. Roughly 19 days later, a second group – at least 70 men led by Elmo and transporting the Company's treasure chest – must have also rode through Needle.
