Abridged History of the 10th Age
The second half of Balduen the Fair’s domain, Westreth is much richer than Lomere. Good farmlands coupled with an unbeatable location on the Inner Sea coast make Westreth a cosmopolitan region where massive urban trade and country life exist side by side. The Princes of Westreth and Lomere (so known to distinguish them from the Crown Princes of Miles) have long kept their home in the port-city of Tourons which sits at the very tip of the Westreth Peninsula jutting out into the sea.
Westreth rivals the Hearthland as cultural and spiritual heart of Thyrnesse due to its high population and large numbers of merchants and skilled artisans. Tourons is sometimes called the City of Wizards due to the large number of sorcerers who inhabit it. In addition, the few ships which leave for Oronë every year leave from Tourons, giving it an elevated status.
