Third Age 5644: Jieret and his clansmen travel here to meet with Lady Maenalle. The author has stated that this event took place at the west outpost, even though it isn't explicitly identified as such in the book. Jieret's men marvel at the settlement's similarity to a village, since the clans of Rathain are more persecuted than those in Tysan and cannot establish permanent roots.
