Wyn Falas

(population: 58,000) Wyn Falas; which means "Western Landing" in elvish, is the capital and largest city in the Kingdom of Cyrendar.

The oldest city on Corwyn, Wyn Falas is located on the Lost Coast of Westvale Island.

Long ago, this city was part of the ancient elvish civilization of Ectharë, but has been populated by the Iskari for many centuries.

The city is large and beautiful, with ancient elvish architecture gracing nearly every street in the "Old City" District.

Tall towers, graceful arches, lush parks and flowing fountains adorn much of the city, as a constant reminder of its ancient elven heritage

Overlooking the city is the magnificent castle of Erôn-Wyntharë; which has long served Cyrendar's Royal family and is home to the famed Onyx Throne.

Wyn Falas is accessible via three main roads; the Kingsway, which runs east to Castle Arden, the Lost Coast Road; which runs north to Krylnath, and the Tharnia Road; which runs northeast to Tharnia.

Since Wyn Falas is a world-famous seaport, most visitors arrive not by land, but via the city's grand harbor. At any given time, as many as 500 merchant ships can be found moored to one of its many stone quays.

Ships visit Wyn Falas from many ports, including: Alarë, Elsareth, Freeport, Greymeet, Kingsport, Krylnath, Lhazar, Natharos, Pike's Ferry, Syrene, Tharnia, and Tymor.

Local History

Back in the early years of the First Age, Wyn Falas was first founded by the Silvar-Elves, who arrived by ship from the far-away continent of Eryn Norvë. That is how the city got its name, which in elvish means "Western Landing."

Eventually the Elder-Elves established a civilization called "Ectharë," and Wyn Falas was an important elvish port, serving the trade routes between Corwyn and the Isle of Greymeet.

After the terrible War of Wrath ended, the ancient race of elves split into three groups, in an event called the "Sundering."

The Elvish group led by Queen Ariel Alessarë became known as the "Grey-Elves," and Wyn Falas became the capital of their new realm, which was called "Wyntharë."

In the year 884/3, Wyntharë was completely devastated by a terrible earthquake called the "Great Rift." Afterward, most of the Grey-Elves were either killed or maimed, and the survivors were bitter and morose.

Around the year 1000/3, The surviving Grey-Elves abandoned the city and sailed to Eryn Norvë. Afterward, the city lay abandoned for over fifty years.

Around 1055/3, the first Iskari human colonists from Iskandar arrived, led by Ilnavel Cyrenäe.

Ilnavel and his settlers re-built the city and it soon became the capitol of a new Iskari kingdom called Cyrendar.
