HistoryEdit

GeographyEdit

The modern Yeomanry is located in the southwestern portion of the Flanaess. It is nestled entirely within a broad basin bounded by the Jotens to the north, the Crystalmist Mountains to the west and south, and the Little Hills to the east. The valley passage between the Little Hills and the Tors leads directly into the Hool Marshes. A long cave system know as the Passage of Slerotin tunnels under the Hellfurnaces from the town of Dark Gate in the Yeomanry, finally emerging over 200 miles away into the Sea of Dust.

As of 591 CY, the most populous towns are Loftwick (pop. 8,400), Longspear (pop. 7,700), Farvale (pop. 4,400), North Reach (pop. 3,700), and Westburn (pop. 2,500).
