Valandra

Valandra is the ancient capital of the old world as is said to have been the birthplace of man-kind 30,000 years ago. Though scholars dispute the numbers claiming the world to be far older and the original settlers, due to some unknown reason, moved north beyond wall.

The capital gets its name from the first of the royal houses. House Val at the start of the second age. See the ‘History of the Val-al’ below for more details.

The current king is Romius Colgrim the Fifth.
