Sokoro Union
ruins-34.jpg

A powerful Thannish stronghold that existed in the late Third Age. The Union was later conquered by Valden Durethë and absorbed into the fledgling kingdom of Valdor. The capitol of the Sokoro Union was the city of Varistan. The Sokoro Union was led by a line of Thannish nobles called "Princes." The Last Prince of Sokoro was defeated in battle by Valden, but was spared. He later became a close friend and ally of the King in his later conquests.

Those human tribes of the Union that chose not to submit to Valden fled into the desolate hills and secluded valley near here. Today, their descendants are called the Velskir barbarians; fierce, mounted tribes of raiders, who constantly plague travelers and rural villages in eastern Eldara.
