Daenfal

From Paravia Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Daenfal is a city on the northern shore of Lake Daenfal in Daon Ramon, Rathain. The old city sits on the eastern edge of the River Arwent, built up around a Paravian watchtower. Because of the River Arwent gorge on the west side, travelers must take a ferry across to enter the city. The southern side of the city is marked by a red sandstone revetment.

In the eastern crags overlooking a Paravian ampitheater for mourning the departed, humankind built a layered necropolis in the Third Age.
