Brindol is a small city in the heart of Elsir Vale. One of the largest settlements in the Vale, Brindol is located on the south bank of the Elsire River as it runs along the Dawn Way. Brindol is known throughout the realm for its succulent fruits grown along the winding Elsir River. However the mainstay of this farming community is grain, which is grown seasonally in the large open fields that surround Bridol for many miles. Due to it’s location, size and fortifications, Brindol is a regular stopover for caravans and the occational traveller. Brindol is the home of Lord Warden Harrik Orenna . His small keep and the city walls are the only fortifications of note this side of Dennovar.
Population: 6,700; another 1,000 live within a five-mile radius of the town itself. The people of Brindol are mostly humans, half-elves, and dwarves. The town’s population swells by several hundred whenever some connected halfling clans known as “the river people” are in town.
Government: A town has a council, two-thirds of whom are hereditary landlords and the remainder
of whom are guildmasters from the city’s important trade guilds. Lord Warden Harrik Orenna is the public face of the council and commander of the city militia.
Defense: The city has 200 soldiers under arms at all times, with about one-quarter on duty at any given time. In times of crisis, the Lord Warden has access to another 200 well-equipped but poorly trained soldiers by calling up the militia.
