Clans with HQ's in Rynvale
Rynvale is one of the role play hubs for players of The Row. This out-of-character collection of players of rogue, thief, pirate, and otherwise shady characters, share the familiar turf of the 'rows' or slum neighborhoods of Port Rynvale as their world. The clan's unofficial headquarters is The Kraken's Lair Saloon and is accessible by clan key access only. Players interested in RP there should contact members of the clan for RP.
Rynvale is the Torchlight Rebels' official home, a semi-secret society that temporarily becomes active during times of great crisis. Although many members formally heed another clan's banner, they still serve the Rebels' call when they are needed. Rynvale was chosen as their HQ to strengthen one of the founding ideals that Rynvale is a free-state society, where all are welcome and treated as equals among a peaceful society.
Rynvale is also currently defended by the militia forces of The Fold. They have established a military presence on the island in a Garrison outpost situated on the plateaus overlooking the city proper. The clan also has a presence within the newly constituted Royal Fleet that guards the island's shoreline and Harbor.
Training Areas in Rynvale
The Dragons located north of Rynvale provide a vital income and training experience for all players within the 1-2K HP range.
Geographic Areas in Rynvale
In the north-eastern section of Rynvale Island lies a large plateau. On top of this plateau, amidst the rolling hills, occasional chasms, and patches of the heavy forest is the largest concentration of Dragons in the known world.
Fog Forest lies on the western side of Rynvale Island. Perpetually shrouded in the mists and fog that give it its name, it is also home to a variety of dangerous beasts and critters. And for those who brave the trail through it, on the far side of it lies the Ogre city of Gamorg. It is debatable whether or not the trip is worth the danger for most people.
Located on the island of Rynvale, north of the Fog Forest, Gamorg was once a far more civilized settlement before the ogres claimed it as it's own. While there is much speculation on what once stood in the place of the Ogre city and to the identity of those who inhabited it first, most believe it belonged to the high elves of Rynvale though the truth is very likely forever lost to history but remnants of the old civilization remain littered across the landscape as a constant reminder of what once was and as a tribute to the power of the mighty race.
The face of Rynvale Island, the port city which takes the same name is, for the most part, a haven of civility and nobility from the primal surroundings of the Fog Forest and the Dragonlands that flank it to the north and west. Built upon the flat lowlands of the southern coastline, the hardy soil was well suited as a foundation upon which the lavish homes and buildings of the High Elves could be constructed. Not only this, but it allowed for excavation to create an intricate network of sewer tunnels beneath in later years of its existence. The western edge of the area of Port Rynvale is a stark contrast to the peaceful waters of the harbor. Waves constantly crash and mold the coastal cliffs and stones to form a forest of coves and caves. Rumors have it that many men and women of ill repute inhabit these natural dwellings.
Economic Areas in Rynvale
Fishing is available at the Fisherman's Warf in the southwest region of the island. Directions:1s,3w,2s,1w of the Rynvale recall. (Broken Barrel Inn)
Mining is available at the Goblin Slave Mine in Gamorg.
Political Information About Rynvale
Rynvale was established as and continues to run as a free state, where High Elves continue to be the dominant race. It is a democratic monarchy ruled by the High Elves' elected King and Queen. Their roles are mostly titular and social, governing being delegated primarily to the formal governing body in Rynvale. This is headed by the Governor, who is usually appointed directly by the sitting Royals, the first of whom was Lord Donovan. After him, his son, Shen, was the last remaining Priest of Xalious and newly-ordained Knight of Faith. And during Shen's absence, Talisia temporarily took over as acting governor.
The Empire of Archmosia, led by Vuryal annexed the city by force, dispelling all of the high elves that resisted and placed the city under the watch of the Resurrected and its allies. Talisia became the Rynvalian government leader in exile with no sitting royals, retaining that office until her marriage to the Archmage Rheven. She passed on the responsibilities of leadership at that time to the High Elf paladin warrior Arien, who took over the duty of leading the rebel resistance to reclaim the isle.
After months of resistance and multiple failed attempts at pushing back the Imperial forces, allied rebels under the command of the island's unofficial Lt. Governor Arien stormed the city of Port Rynvale, managing to push back the Imperial presence to the borders of the northernmost town of Gamorg. With the High Elf royals were restored to their thrones, Arien was appointed Governor of the liberated city.
