'The Garden of Lyssia': one of the smallest of the Seven Realms, the Dalelands comprises the noble territories of numerous Werelords, including the Boars of Redmire, the Foxes of Hedgemoor and the Badgers of Bray. Quiet and peaceful, the people of these lands have always enjoyed the protection of their bigger, more powerful neighbours, not least because of the agricultural wealth of the Dalelands. Situated as it is between the Great West Road and the Redwine, a great deal of the wealth that has passed along those trade routes has found a home in these prosperous states. Earl Huth, the Wereboar of Redmire, is the appointed spokesman of the Werelords of the Dalelands.
