Abridged History of the 10th Age
Vaelarus is a small region of Thyrnesse, nestled between the Western Borderlands and Westreth. It is an area swathed in heavy forests and sleepy dales, though the Vaelarian militias are constantly ready, for bandits often come down from the Byrnish Wastes to loot. A jumble of small baronies and counties, Vaelarus pays homage directly to the king without any overlord. However, the most potent of the barons in the region is Cedric Karrel, who’s opinion most of the other barons follow (or violently disagree with depending on the baron).
