The Unfinished Spire
The Golden Valley is the seat of power in the kingdom of Alathor and home to the city for which the kingdom is named.
A fertile strip of land bordered by each of the seven regions of the kingdom, the Golden Valley was once a war-scarred and near-uninhabitable place, fought over by the seven houses as each vied for control of the land.
That all changed, however, with the coming of The Uniter. Details of the period are unclear, but the warring quickly subsided and, under the direction of The Uniter, a new kingdom was formed and a new city, Alathor, constructed as its capitol.
While the land still bares the scars of the wars that ravaged it, the Golden Valley has once again become the most fertile part of the Kingdom, eclipsing even the Dutchy of Sodor.
