Shadows of Esteren: The Gaes of Tulg
Dearg is close to Melwan and Loch Varn’s Vales. It is located in the North of Toal Kaer’s kingdom, in the Duchy of Tulg. Because it is very near to the border of Gwidre, the War of the Temple left its mark on Dearg’s Vale. The Vale is dominated by Smiorail’s fortress, a citadel which protects the one passable gap leading to Gwidre in the region. Huge mining installations stand outside of Dearg, each protected by its own fortification. It frequently trades with Melwan, which is often called its twin village, as well as the village of Faeril, which supplies the mining operations of Dearg with its ample lumber needs.
Hilderin Knights run the whole of the Vale since the death of the last descendants of the Mac Govrian family, whose members traditionally ruled over these lands.
