Additions:
The people of Anórien like to eat heartily and well. They take three meals a day, the lightest of which is luncheon. Everyone enjoys a large and filling breakfast to set them up for the day's work (much to disdain the folk of [[Lebennin]], who prefer light breakfasts). Ever since of Atanatar II Alcarin (who made a joke about it), the Anóriens have referred to breakfast as their "morsel". The basis is a platter of cold meats, including smoked fish and patés. These are accompanied by raw vegetables, grated or shredded, with a dressing made using honey and herbs; and also by unleavened bread, scones or oatcakes.

Additions:
Men of Anórien picture themselves as down-to-earth, assiduous, stalwart and honest, boots deep in clay. At least half of the dúnadan inhabitants boast or pretend a descent from Anárion himself and praise his simple virtues. Most Anóriens look upon men of [[Lebennin]] as haughty and obstinate, as [[Ithilien Ithileans]] are head-in-clouds and inclined to mysticism. They love their [[Tarondor King]] and his antics, and most think that all Southrons are untrustworthy.

Pies are a way of life for the people of Anórien. They put all sorts of things under a pastry crust: eggs, fish, vegetables, cured ham, cheese, beef, venison and rabbit - richer families may use wild pig, deer, pheasant and grouse. Another standard Anórian fare is a thick, creamy soup or hotpot. When it comes to drinking, Anóriens have an odd habit to prefer milk, soured milk, watered beer or local red wine.

Additions:
Fish forms one of the staple elements in the diet of the Anórien populace. Everything from the most delicate roes to the strongest flesh is eaten in pies, soups, patés and broiling dishes. No household is without a //kemunq//: a clay pot, oval in shape, with a rough-fitting lid, in which a whole fish can be baked with tender herbs and a chopped bed of galasenin. A fierce heat is used, and partway through the cooking process, a goodly amount of sweet white wine from Ithilien is added.

Additions:
The people of Anórien appreciate the delicious fruits grown in their sunny orchards. Cherry, apple and some olive trees in sheltered areas are tended well in neat lines between which smaller stakes form the trellises for soft fruits: currants, gooseberries and cheselles, a small white fruit with a creamy texture. The orchards make excellent homes for beehives producing plain and scented honey.

Additions:
Terrain in Anórien is flat drainage basin nurtured by rivers Anduin and Entwash, fertile and rich. Inviolate and pathless pine forests grow in the steep foothills of the White Mountains. These forests belong to the King. Other woods are small; mostly oak, ash, elm and poplar. All fertile land in Anórien is owned by a few big landowners, if not part of the Royal Ward tended by share-croppers.

Additions:
Along the ways are a number of shelters: simple stone huts with tiled roofs and a hearth, so that travellers can wait out violent wind or rain. Also provided for the traveller are wayside league-stones marking the mileage to various places inscribed with the //Angerthas// runes or angular Elvish lettering. A less common sight is the roadside gibbet where criminals are hung for all to see. The Royal Road is furnished with inns at regular intervals to service both merchants and King's dispatch riders.

Additions:
Anórien is connected to [[Calenardhon]] by the Royal Road shaded with twin lines of magificent poplars. All roads are well maintained. The major ones have a broad cobbled path wide enough for carts to pass one another with ease. This trackway is cambered and provided with drains so that it never becomes boggy or rutted. Flanking the trackway is another broad strip, this time of turf, used by riders. Many avenues are hedged.

Additions:
Known as the **Land of the Sun**, Anórien is wealthy and populous region in northern [[Gondor]] where [[MinasAnor Minas Anor]] is located. Anórien lies north and east of the White Mountains, between the Anduin, Erui, Glanhír (river Mering) and Mouths of Entwash. It was established in S.A. 3320 by **Anárion** to be settled with his kinsmen and refuges from Númenor. However, some of its inhabitants are not of Dúnadan stock: Foothills and forests of Ered Nimrais are home to a reclusive and primitive aboriginal people called //Drúedain// ("Woodwoses").

Additions:
The uplands of Anórien is moderately inaccessible. There are no cartways and only a few paths which horses and mules can traverse. There are, however, the tracks of humas passage and trails of the mountain goats and sheep to follow, should one wish to venture into the interior. The mountains itself are useful source of fine limestone and marble, but in this area there are no mines for gems or minerals; better deposits lie west in the dales of [[Lamedon]]. Gondorians also shun the many forests owing to the presence of the Drúedain. Men of the mountain are descendants of the pre-Númenorean population: They are dark, long-haired and keep beards, making their living herding long-haired and sure-footed goats and gathering the wild plants.

Additions:
Pigeons and small, plump game birds are raised and netted during the late autumn and winter to provide succulent seasonal fare. Along water courses (many which are conduits and canals built by the Dúnedain to improve the irrigation and fertility of the townlands) are pools with fisheries and ponds where a wide variety of water plants are cultivated. One of the staple green vegetables is a species of watercress with large, crinkly leaves called //galasenin//. There are also lilies with edible roots, watermelons and a few water meadows where flowers are grown supplying florists in the markets of [[MinasAnor Minas Anor]].
The Great Anduin teems with many sorts of fish; it ceases being tidal between the [[Harlond]] and [[Osgiliath]] (although still broad and navigable) so there is a mixture of salt and freshwater fish. The largest fish are great salmon, trout and sturgeon, but there is a seemingly endless variety of other fish with a range of flavours and textures to enliven the most jaded palate.
Fish forms on the staple elements in the diest of the Anórien populace. Everything from the most delicate roes to the strongest flesh is eaten in pies, soups, patés and broiling dishes.

A fierce heat is used, and partway through the cooking process, a goodly amount of sweet white wine from Ithilien is added.
Anórians catch fish with both net and line. The fishermen's small boats put out from their steep-sloped reaches at dawn and drop trail nets or cork-floatedf lines from which several hooks dangle. Those seeking large fish use barbed spears attached to coils of strong line, then bait the waters with chopped offal. Fine nets are used to catch eels; in the spring thousands upon thousands throng the waters heading upstream to Nindalf and the Mouths of Entwash where they breed, swimming back down to the sea later in the year. Salmon and trout migrate all the way up Anduin, or so it is claimed, to colder headwaters and tributaries in the Misty and Grey Mountains.
The people of Anórien like to eat heartily and well. They take three meals a day, the lightest which is nuncheon. Everyone enjoys a large and filling breakfast to set them up for the day's fork ahead (much to disdain the folk of [[Lebennin]], who prefer light breakfasts). Ever since of ''Atanatar II Alcarin'' (who made a joke about it), the Anóriens have referred to breakfast as their "morsel". The basis is a platter of cold meats, including smoked fish and patés. These are accompanied by raw vegetables, grated or shredded, with a dressing using honey and herbs; and also by unleavened bread, scones or oatcakes.

Additions:
Terrain in Anórien is flat drainage basin nurtured by rivers Anduin and Entwash, fertile and rich. Inviolate and pathless pine forests grow in steep downhills of the White Mountains. These forests belong to the King. Other woods are small; mostly oak, ash, elm and poplar. All fertile land in Anórien is owned by few big landowners, if not part of the Royal Ward tended by share-croppers.
Rural villas in Anórien are biggest of all [[Gondor]], typically built around the four sides of a square courtyard. The buildings are part-timber, part-stone, usually whitewashed and with a red tiled roof, surrounded by orchards and gardens. They produce barley, oat, wine, apples, cherries, peaches and honey. Anórien is also known as the prime producer of pork, including dry-cured ham.
The uplands of Anórien is moderately inaccessible. There are no cartways and only a few paths which horses and mules can traverse. There are, however, the tracks of humas passage and trails of the mountain goats and sheep to follow, should one wish to venture into the interior. The mountains itself are useful source of fine limestone and marble, but in this area there are no mines for gems or minerals; better deposits lie west in the dales of [[Lamedon]].

Men of the mountain are descendants of the pre-Númenorean population: They are dark, long-haired and keep beards, making their living herding long-haired and sure-footed goats and gathering the wild plants.
Forests in the south-east corner of Anórien runs the Royal road from [[MinasAnor Minas Anor]] to the Fords of Isen in [[Calenardhon]]. Nearest Minas Anor is the Grey-Wood, a royal hunting ground. East of Stonewain-Valley it becomes the Drúadan Forest, where the Wild Men of the Woods still live their recluse life. Most men avoid the tangled wilderness, but Gondorian army maintains a lookout post at Eilenach and Nardol.

Deletions:
Terrain in Anórien is flat drainage basin nurtured by rivers Anduin and Entwash, fertile and rich. Inviolate and pathless pine forests grow in steep downhills of the White Mountains. These forests belong to the King and King only. Other woods are small; mostly oak, ash, elm and poplar. All fertile land in Anórien is owned by few big landowners, if not part of the Royal Ward tended by share-croppers.
Rural villas in Anórien are biggest of all Gondor, typically built around the four sides of a square courtyard. The buildings are part-timber, part-stone, usually whitewashed and with a red tiled roof, surrounded by orchards and gardens. They produce barley, oat, wine, apples, cherries, peaches and honey. Anórien is also known as the prime producer of pork, including dry-cured ham.
The uplands of Anórien is moderately inaccessible. There are no cartways and only a few paths which horses and mules can traverse. There are, however, the tracks of humas passage and trails of the mountain goats and sheep to follow, should one wish to venture into the interior. The mountains itself are useful source of fine limestone and marble, but in this area there are no mines for gems or minerals; better deposits lie west in the dales of Lamedon. Gondorians also sun the many forests owing to the presence of the Drúedain. Men of the mountain are descendants of the pre-Númenorean population: They are dark, long-haired and keep beards, making their living herding long-haired and sure-footed goats and gathering the wild plants.
Forests in the south-east corner of Anórien runs the Royal road from Minas Anor to the Fords of Isen in Calenardhon. Nearest Minas Anor is the Grey-Wood, a royal hunting ground. East of Stonewain-Valley it becomes the Drúadan Forest, where the Wild Men of the Woods still live their recluse life. Most men avoid the tangled wilderness, but Gondorian army maintains a lookout post at Eilenach and Nardol.

-----
The seven Beacon-hills of Gondor ran from east to west through Anorien to the border of Rohan. The first three hills - Amon Din, Eilenach, and Nardol - were in the Druadan Forest. The next three hills - Erelas, Min-Rimmon, and Calenhad - stood at the foot of the White Mountains. The seventh hill - Halifirien - was in the Firien Wood on the border between Anorien and Rohan.

Additions:
Anórien is divided into five distinct regoins: //Doranórien// along the Royal Road, //Entyn-in-Onodlo// (Mouths of Entwash), //Cair Andros// (island at Anduin), fields of //Pelennor// and the valleys and lowlands of //Lossarnach// bordering [[Lebennin]]. Lossarnach and Cair Andros are counties, other ares are managed by wardens appointed by royal writ.
====Culture====
===Agriculture===
Pelennor's well-protected farmlands grow many cash crops and goods which do not travel well. There are multitude of pens of geese, ducks and hens, especially the small but productive Black-backed Hen which can lay up to 150 eggs a year when well kept. There are also many pig- and rabbit-farmers who rear animals on an intensive basis in scyppens, sties and artificial warrens. In larger fields the great white cattle are herded producing fine fattened beef and rich milk from the superb pastureland.
The people of Anórien appreciate the delicious fruits grown in their sunny orchards. Cherry, apple and some olive trees in sheltered areas are tended well in neat lines between which smaller stakes form the trellises for soft fruits: currants, gooseberries and cheselles, a small white fruit with a creamy texture. The orchards make excellent hmes for beehives producing plain and scented honey.
Pigeons and small, plump game birds are raised and netted during the late autumn and winter to provide succulent seasonal fare. Along water courses (many which are conduits and canals built by the Dúnedain to improve the irrigation and fertility of the townlands) are pools with fisheries and ponds where a wide variety of water plants are cultivated. One of the staple green vegetables is a species of watercress with large, crinkly leaves called //galasenin//. There are also lilies with edible roots, watermelons and a few water meadows where flowers are grown supplying florists in the markets of Minas Anor.
===Fish===
The Great Anduin teems with many sorts of fish; it ceases being tidal between the Harlond and Osgiliath (although still broad and navigable) so there is a mixture of salt and freshwater fish. The largest fish are great salmon, trout and sturgeon, but there is a seemingly endless variety of other fish with a range of flavours and textures to enliven the most jaded palate.
Fish forms on the staple elements in the diest of the Anórien populace. Everything from the most delicate roes to the strongest flesh is eaten in pies, soups, patés and broiling dishes. No household is without a kemunq: a clay pot, oval in shape, with a rough-fitting lid, in which a whole fish can be baked with tender herbs and a chopped bed of galasenin. A fierce heat is used, and partway through the cooking process, a goodly amount of sweet white wine from Ithilien is added.
Gondorians catch fish with both net and line. The fishermen's small boats put out from their steep-sloped reaches at dawn and drop trail nets or cork-floatedf lines from which several hooks dangle. Those seeking large fish use barbed spears attached to coils of strong line, then bait the waters with chopped offal. Fine nets are used to catch eels; in the spring thousands upon thousands throng the waters heading upstream to Nindalf and the Mouths of Entwash where they breed, swimming back down to the sea later in the year. Salmon and trout migrate all the way up Anduin, or so it is claimed, to colder headwaters and tributaries in the Misty and Grey Mountains.
===Cuisine===
The people of Anórien like to eat heartily and well. They take three meals a day, the lightest which is nuncheon. Everyone enjoys a large and filling breakfast to set them up for the day's fork ahead (much to disdain the folk of Lebennin, who prefer light breakfasts). Ever since of Atanatar II Alcarin (who made a joke about it), the Anóriens have referred to breakfast as their "morsel". The basis is a platter of cold meats, including smoked fish and patés. These are accompanied by raw vegetables, grated or shredded, with a dressing using honey and herbs; and also by unleavened bread, scones or oatcakes.
Pies are a way of life for the people of Anórien. They put all sorts of things under a pastry crust: eggs, fish, vegetables, cured ham, cheese, beef, venison and rabbit - richer families may use wild pig, deer, pheasant and grouse. Another standard Anórian fare is a thich, creamy soup or hotpot. When it comes to drinking, Anóriens have an odd habit to prefer milk, soured milk, watered beer or local red wine.

Myös hanhia pidetään
erityisen paljon. Hedelmien, munien ja sianlihan lisäksi anórienlaiseen ruokavalioon kuuluvat ehdottomasti sellaiset
kalalajit kuin lohi, taimen ja sampi, joita nostetaan Anduinista huomattavia määriä.
Anórienlaiset syövät ja juovat hyvin. Erityisesti he ovat kuuluisia tukevista aamiaisistaan, joihin kuuluu kylmää
paistia, savustettua kalaa tai patéeta, jotka tarjotaan raakojen vihannesten, yrttien, hunajan, tuoreen leivän ja
kaurakakkujen kera. Aamiaisen kanssa nautitaan piimää, maitoa tai vesitettyä olutta, tai kuumaa maitoa ja
kaurapuuroa talven kylminä päivinä. Dúnedainin pääateria syödään illansuussa. Se on tärkeä sosiaalinen tapahtuma,
johon koko perhe tai useampiakin perheitä ottaa osaa. Kala paistetaan yleensä kokonaisena viinissä tai fileroidaan ja
käytetään piiraantäytteenä. Piirakat ovat suorastaan elämäntapa anórienlaisille, jotka pistävät niihin mitä tahansa:
munaa, kalaa, vihanneksia, kinkkua, juustoa, lintua tai jänistä. Aatelisto nauttii riistasta: villisikaa, kaurista, fasaania,
kaulushaikaraa, riikinkukkoa tai peltopyytä. Alkuruokana on ainakin talvisin sakea, kermainen keitto tai lihalaatikko.
Jokainen ruoka tarjotaan runsaiden vihannesten ja yrttien kera; lautasen virkaa toimittavat joskus suuret leipäpalat.
Aterioiden välissä anórienlaiset syövät välipaloja: piiraita, juustoja ja halvakakkua. Suosituimmat juomat ovat
maakunnan omat oluet ja punaviinit.
Maakunnan asukkaat tunnetaan käytännönläheisinä ja maallisina ihmisinä. He ovat suoraselkäistä ja uutteraa väkeä,
joilta tuntuu puuttuvan joen toisella puolella Ithilienissä asuvien itäisten veljiensä taipumus hurskauteen ja
mystiikkaan.
Suuri rutto runteli pahoin Anórienin maata. Pääkaupunki, Minas Anor, säästyi kuitenkin muita kaupunkeja
vähemmällä suotuisan sijaintinsa, terveellisen vuori-ilmansa ja toimivan viemärilaitoksensa ansiosta. Merkittävä osa
kaupungin asukkaista pakeni tautia läheisiin Lossarnachin vuorilaaksoihin. Maakuntaa hallitsee kuninkaan nimissä
hänen serkkunsa, käskynhaltija Mindacil.
Wiki:
The Druadan Forest was in Anorien at the foot of the White Mountains west of Minas Tirith. The forest was inhabited by a race of Men called the Druedain, or Woses. The Stonewain Valley ran between the forest and the mountains. A road through the Stonewain Valley was used to transport stones from the quarries on the western side of the forest.
Part of the Firien Wood was in Anorien east of the Mering Stream, and part was west of the stream in Rohan. Over time, however, the entire forest came to be considered the domain of Rohan.
The Great West Road ran through Anorien from Minas Tirith to the Mering Stream. From there the road continued through Rohan and on through the Gap of Rohan and joined the North-South Road to Arnor.
When Gondor was founded in 3320 of the Second Age, Anorien was the domain of Elendil's younger son Anarion, while the elder son Isildur lived across the Anduin in Ithilien. Anarion established the stronghold of Minas Anor, which was later renamed Minas Tirith.
Anorien was a populous region. The people of Anorien were responsible for defending the Mering Stream, particularly in the days when Calenardhon was deserted and Gondor was vulnerable to attack from the west. The danger from the west decreased after 2510 when Calenardhon became Rohan - Gondor's strongest ally.
The people of Anorien were also charged with defending the crossings of the Anduin from attack by Sauron's forces in the East. The island of Cair Andros in the Anduin between Anorien and Ithilien was fortified to prevent an invasion.

Known as the **Land of the Sun**, Anórien is wealthy and populous region in northern [[Gondor]] where [[MinasAnor Minas Anor]] was located. Anórien lies north and east of the White Mountains, between the Anduin, Erui, Glanhír (river Mering) and Mouths of Entwash. It was established in S.A. 3320 by **Anárion** to be settled with his kinsmen and refuges from Númenor. However, some of its inhabitants are not of Dúnadan stock: Foothills and forests of Ered Nimrais are home to recluse and primitive aboriginal people called //Drúedain// ("Woodwoses").

Flanking the trackway is another broad strip, this time of turf, used by riders. Many avenues are hedged.
Along the ways are a number of shelters: simple stone huts with tiled roofs and a hearth, so that travellers can wait out violent wind or rain. Also provided for the traveller are wayside league-stones maring the mileage to various places inscribed with the //Angerthas// runes or angular Elvish lettering. A less common sight is the roadside gibbet where criminals are hung for all to see. The Royal Road is furnished with inns at regular intervals to service both merchants and King's dispatch riders.

Revision [2053]

Additions:
Region in northern Gondor where Minas Tirith was located. Anorien was north of the White Mountains, between the Anduin and Mering Stream. East of the Anduin was Ithilien. West of the Mering Stream was Rohan, which was formerly a province of Gondor called Calenardhon. Anorien was bordered on the north by the Mouths of the Entwash.
Minas Tirith was located in eastern Anorien, between the end of the White Mountains and the Anduin. The great seven-tiered city was surrounded by the rich farmlands of the Pelennor Fields. The city of Osgiliath was located on the Anduin about 15 miles northeast of Minas Tirith. The western half of the city was in Anorien while the eastern half was in Ithilien.
The Druadan Forest was in Anorien at the foot of the White Mountains west of Minas Tirith. The forest was inhabited by a race of Men called the Druedain, or Woses. The Stonewain Valley ran between the forest and the mountains. A road through the Stonewain Valley was used to transport stones from the quarries on the western side of the forest.
The seven Beacon-hills of Gondor ran from east to west through Anorien to the border of Rohan. The first three hills - Amon Din, Eilenach, and Nardol - were in the Druadan Forest. The next three hills - Erelas, Min-Rimmon, and Calenhad - stood at the foot of the White Mountains. The seventh hill - Halifirien - was in the Firien Wood on the border between Anorien and Rohan.
Part of the Firien Wood was in Anorien east of the Mering Stream, and part was west of the stream in Rohan. Over time, however, the entire forest came to be considered the domain of Rohan.
The Great West Road ran through Anorien from Minas Tirith to the Mering Stream. From there the road continued through Rohan and on through the Gap of Rohan and joined the North-South Road to Arnor.
When Gondor was founded in 3320 of the Second Age, Anorien was the domain of Elendil's younger son Anarion, while the elder son Isildur lived across the Anduin in Ithilien. Anarion established the stronghold of Minas Anor, which was later renamed Minas Tirith.
Anorien was a populous region. The people of Anorien were responsible for defending the Mering Stream, particularly in the days when Calenardhon was deserted and Gondor was vulnerable to attack from the west. The danger from the west decreased after 2510 when Calenardhon became Rohan - Gondor's strongest ally.
The people of Anorien were also charged with defending the crossings of the Anduin from attack by Sauron's forces in the East. The island of Cair Andros in the Anduin between Anorien and Ithilien was fortified to prevent an invasion.
Deletions:
The Land of Anórien, a part of Gondor bordered to the North by river Onodló and the Mouth of Entwash. About 230 Miles long East/West and 100 Miles North/South at its widest. The Northern part of Anórien is known as the Mouth of Entwash, which most Northern extremity is the boundary river to the East-emnet of Calenardhon. To the East runs Anduin as border to North Ithilien and in the west is the Mering stream the frontier to Eastfold in Calenardhon, at the South is the Ered Nimrais. In the South/East corner of Anórien is Firien-Wood and Firien Dale. From East to West runs the Great West Road at the foothill of Ered Nimrais passing the 7 beacons ; Halifirien, Calenhad, Min-rimmon, Erelas, Nardol, Eilenach in Drúadan forest in the South-East corner and easternmost between the Drúadan-forest and the Grey-Wood the beacon of Amon-Din.

//In the wind from the Sea!"//>>{{image url="images/LebenninVaakunaPieni.png" class="left"}}======Lebennin======
Known as **Fair Lebennin of the Five Streams**, referring to the Five Rivers of Lebennin, it was one of the most beautiful provinces of [[Gondor]]. Its capital and largest city was [[Pelargir]]. Lebennin was largely populated by Men of mixed blood, as many of its inhabitants traced their ancestry to the forgotten 'Men of the Mountains' that had been displaced from the White Mountains by the Númenóreans.
Lebennin's borders to the north are the //Ered Nimrais//, to the south and east, the sea and the Anduin, and to the west, the hills west of vale of Gilraen. The //Rathon Gondor//, the main road connecting northern and southern Gondor, runs from [[MinasAnor Minas Anor]] to [[Linhir]] by way of [[Pelargir]], shaded by twin lines of tall poplars. All of Lebennin's roads, from the //Rathon Gondor// to the smallest village roads, are well kept.
Lebennin has three basics types of terrain. Along the seacost east of [[Fanuilond]] and along the Anduin, the land is low-lying and often boggy. Even though the ground is very fertile, it is unsuitable for cultivating the grains used in southern Gondor. The mountain valleys and foothills to the nort are mostly covered by coniferous forests, and the ground is less fertile than on the plains; here, people live mostly in the lower valleys. The fertile, central plains are the home of the majority of Lebennin's settlers. The Men of Gondor call it the //Talath Lethen// (S. "Plain of Flowers"). Here, beautiful wildflowers brighten the vast green carpet nearly all year.
There are often large areas of boggy ground close to the rivers. During the years before the Kin-strife, some bogs were drained to put new land under the plough, but after the Plague that was no longer necessary, due to the catastrophic decline in population. Between the plains and the Anduin there is a one-to-eight-mile wide bottomland. This is only marginally higher than the river, and is flooded during spring and early summer, particularly the stretch between Pelargir and the sea. The bottomlands are very fertile, and everything can take root deep into the marshy ground.
Lebennin's climate is the same as in the rest of southern Gondor: warm summers and mild winters. But to talk of the ‘weather in Lebennin' is to generalise somewhat. Lebennin encompasses many diverse terrains and landscapes and the rules change from one district to the next. You can be sure that July and August in Lebennin will be hot, sometimes stiflingly so, thanks to the humidity levels that can make Pelargir and the major cities of Lebennin veritable hothouses.
This situation is supposed to break around the 1st of //Ivanneth// (middle of August), when the first rains are expected and with them a beginning of a decrease in temperature. //Ivanneth// is especially pleasant time in Lebennin, with clear blue skies. //Narbeleth// sees night-time temperatures really begin to drop, with crisp autumn days to accompany the main olive harvest throughout Lebennin. Even though most of Lebennin does not suffer from cold winters, these are still unpleasant; from //Girithron// to //Nínui// it rains almost daily. But spring always seems to come quickly.
''**Lebennivet**'': Legate of Lebennivet district, //herdir// Dunsûl, commander of the Corsair Shore Garrison
