Rin Falar
City-27.jpg

(population: 51,000) Major city in the kingdom of Eldara. This large city in southern Eldara has long been a fortress, with strong walls, many towers, and battlements to protect its subjects. The city has a long dark history of war and conquest because of its proximity to the Vilzari border. Rin Falar has been attacked, besieged, and even destroyed several times. The city is the second largest in Eldara, but the most well protected. It lies only scant 200 miles north of the Kerak, the great barrier erected by the Ravinian Empire to ward off Vilzari raiders. The city of Rin Falar is accessible via the Rin Falar Road which connects the city to Eldarand to the north and from the south via the unpaved Desert Road, that connects it the Gateway Keep and the Isthmus Road further south.

HISTORY


In the late Third Age, Rin Falar was the capitol of a small human nation called the Rin Falar Freehold. It was ruled at that time by a little-known Thannish warrior-Chieftain named the Iron Duke. The Duke opposed the campaign of Valden Durethë, who defeated his army, slew him in battle, and captured the city of Rin Falar. At that time the city became part of what would become Valdor, and later Eldara.
