Land of Legends
Balinor is an odd city. Long ago during during the Second Age the Fey found the sacred tree of Balinor on an island in the bay formed where the river Ban meets the sea. The tree while not worked by their hands before held the same sort of power as their trees and so some decided to stay and build an outpost to guard and protect this tree. During the Third Age however others came and wanted to settle along the river. Those in the Fey outpost agreed to allow them access to the rest of the nearby lands and struck up a alliance that has waned and strengthened depending on how has been in power in the town itself.
