A Long Forgotten Power
A region named for the founding city. Ballyhaunis lies north of the Menedor Mountains in Cheliax. A long standing agreement between Aroden and the Lord allowed him near autonomy in the governance of his region before Aroden’s death. The rise of the House of Thrune and the diabolists has hung a dark cloud over the city as with the rest of Cheliax. They are still provided a large amount of freedom though, given that the nobles of the House of Thrune and the court of Queen Abrogail II are the largest buyers of the highest quality wine and spirits produced in the region. A contingent of Chelish soldiers is stationed in Ballyhaunis and a Lieutenant of the Chelish Army acts as the cities Sheriff as a sign of accord between the city and the crown.
Ballyhaunis Castle rests in the foothills of the Menedor Mountains about a mile from the river itself, but occasional flooding and very wet winters keeps the area a vibrant green almost year round.
