Lamp Country


The Lamp Country

The peculiar name of this province has a long story behind it. Many halfling and gnomish allies of the Avarine people were settled in this lush and pleasant countryside and the ElsoĆ­n line gave them self-rule, much like the Avarine colonies. Each town is self governing, answerable only for the Emperor’s coin and high crimes such as murder. The only other ordnance they must obey (other than road and bridge repair) is to hang lanterns along the lanes and highways at night and keep them lit. Thus, the Lamp Country. The taxes don’t actually go to the Emperor, either. In the Ninth Age the King of Miles granted the tax income of the Lamp Country to the Hierian Temple.

There is also a small concentration of elves in the Lamp Country; the towns of Sennon Hollow and Whitewood are both overwhelmingly elvish; Wood elves reside in Sennon Hollow and Wind Elves in Whitewood.
