Established centuries ago, this is the only city that has managed to stand against the elements thanks to its fortifications. The lands within the crescent of trees are particularly fertile. The city is ruled by King Henrick, descendant of the original settlers who built the walls.
20 years ago, the hobgoblins and orcs managed to organize themselves behind a single leader. They amassed a great army and marched on Val-Vale. The city’s army was clearly outnumbered but miraculously, Heinrick rode onto the fields to meet them and came out victorious. They say his men’s armor shone blindingly in the sun. This became known as The Shining Victory.
