Capital of The Talenta Plains
(Large Town, 2,300)
The large town of Gatherhold, built into the rocky outcroppings and hills along the eastern shore of Lake Cyre, is a shared town. All the halfling tribes can use it. The tribes come to the town to trade, hold celebrations, attend tribal councils, or find protection from the elements or hostile forces. House Ghallanda maintains the town and keeps a presence there even when all the tribes are away. House Orien maintains a lightning rail line that passes through the town and used to continue on into Metrol, before the Day of Mourning.
Patriarch Yoren presides over a great hall at the center of the town, but House Ghallanda maintains the entire community for the nomadic tribes who come and go with the seasons.
