Asolade Hundred Gazateer

All of these locations (except Bilby) are shown on the Asolade Hundred map:

Andrake: A stone manor house and a nearby village, both held by Lord Mazerony from the Earl of Balim.

Asolade: A stone manor house and a nearby village, both administered by the Bailiff of Asolade Hundred, Sir Arrys al Maradyne, on behalf of the acting Sheriff of Osel, Sir Kodar alri Maradyne. There is an old wooden bridge across the River Tamora at Asolade.

Asolade Hundred: One of the five hundreds of Oselshire, administered from Asolade by the Bailiff of Asolade Hundred, Sir Arrys al Maradyne, on behalf of the acting Sheriff of Osel, Sir Kodar alri Maradyne. All freemen in the hundred have recourse from their lords’ moots to the king’s justice through the bailiff of the hundred, but serfs do not.

Bilby: A wooden manor house and a nearby village, both administered by a bailiff, Sir Howart al Mymby, on behalf of the constable of Jedes. (Bilby does not appear on the map; it is located under the “R” in “R. Yeas” and is accessed by a road that follows the north bank of the River Yeas west to Yeashim.)

Bory: A wooden manor house currently being rebuilt in stone and a nearby village, both held by Lord Poulty from the Earl of Balim.

Bromeleon: A stone monastery and a nearby village administered by a pelnala, Rablar al Oppias, on behalf of the Church of Peoni. Bromeleon is a renowned center of the healing arts.

Gemheldon: A village administered by a reeve on behalf of the lord of Meminast.

Hall of Commoners: A stone and timber hall and an adjacent farm, both administered by a farmer on behalf of the Commoners of Tarwyn. The commoner clans – there are thirty-six – enjoy ancient forest rights that predate the Kingdom of Kaldor; they have their own assizes administered by elected verderers. The verderers in turn hire agisters to patrol Tarwyn and enforce the forest laws.

Hutop: A stone keep and a nearby market town, both administered by the acting Sheriff of Osel, Sir Kodar alri Maradyne, on behalf of the King of Kaldor.

Jedes: A stone keep and a nearby market town, both administered by a constable, Sir Shernath alri Midarne, on behalf of the Earl of Balim, Lord Dariune. The constable is widely regarded as a fair and just man.

Keldkith: A village administered by a reeve on behalf of the bailiff of Chewintin.

Kingdom of Kaldor: A kingdom ruled by the King of Kaldor, Sir Miginath alri Elendsa. The king has ruled wisely for many years, but is now old and sick. He has no legitimate heir and many fear that his death will spark a civil war.

Lake Tamora: A lake both fed and drained by the River Tamora.

Meminast: A stone manor house and a nearby village, both held by Lord Erwyne from the Baron of Novelim.

Mowich: A stone manor house and a nearby village, both administered by a bailiff, Sir Fodin al Mazerony, on behalf of the constable of Jedes.

Oselshire: One of the seven shires of the Kingdom of Kaldor, administered from the keep at Hutop by the acting Sheriff of Osel, Sir Kodar alri Maradyne, on behalf of the King of Kaldor. The River Arguna forms part of the boundary between Oselshire and Thelshire; the river ford on the Jedes-Kolorn road has had an evil reputation since a former constable of Jedes and his family were murdered there some thirty years ago.

Poynter: A wooden chapel house and a nearby lepers’ colony administered by an ebasethe, Ael al Ludos, on behalf of the pelnala of Bromeleon. No one travels to Poynter if they can possibly avoid it; lepers are widely feared. According to Kaldoric law, lepers must wear a cloak or robe of red as well as a hat and a hood and they must always carry a bell or clapperboard. They may not drink from public wells and may only use their own eating and drinking implements. They may not touch any produce or livestock for sale and may not enter any inn or tavern. Lepers do, however, have a legal right to beg.

Refelen: A stone manor house and a nearby village, both held by Lord Xalaker from the Sheriff of Osel.

River Golaba: A minor river that flows through lands claimed by both Kaldor and the Kath tribes. It is only navigable by the smallest of boats.

River Kald: A major river that flows south from the northern arm of the Sorkin Mountains past many of the Kingdom of Kaldor’s largest settlements including the capital, Tashal. It forms the northwestern boundary of Asolade Hundred and is heavily traveled.

River Kaluba: A minor river that flows through lands claimed by both Kaldor and the Kath tribes. It is only navigable by the smallest of boats.

River Oro: A minor river. It is only navigable by the smallest of boats.

River Osel: A major river that flows west from the southern arm of the Sorkin Mountains through lands claimed by both Kaldor and the Pagaelin tribes. It forms part of the southern boundary of Asolade Hundred and is rarely traveled.

River Refel: A minor river that (along with the River Daynora) feeds Lake Tasinda and forms part of the southern boundary of Asolade Hundred. It is only navigable by the smallest of boats.

River Tamora: A minor river that both feeds and drains Lake Tamora. It is navigable from the River Kald to Lake Tamora by most boats and that portion is lightly traveled. The portion from Lake Tamora into the Daynora Hundred is only navigable by the smallest of boats.

River Tasinda: A minor river that drains Lake Tasinda and forms part of the southern boundary of Asolade Hundred and the practical (but not official) southern boundary of Tarwyn. It is only navigable by the smallest of boats.

River Yeas: A minor river that forms the practical (but not official) northern boundary of Tarwyn. It is only navigable by the smallest of boats.

Salt Route: A major trade route between the Kingdom of Kaldor in the east and the Thardic Republic in the west. It passes through lands claimed by the Chelni, Kath, and Tulwyn tribes and is lightly traveled for most of the year, but sees two massive caravans annually (one eastbound in the spring and another westbound in the fall). Rumor has it that the Earl of Balim would like to bridge the River Kald at Jedes to divert the Salt Route caravans through his lands.

Semethsire: One of the seven shires of the Kingdom of Kaldor, administered by the Sheriff of Semeth on behalf of the King of Kaldor.

Skaist: A stone manor house and a nearby village, both administered by a bailiff, Sir Garith al Kaphin, on behalf of the constable of Jedes.

Thelshire: One of the seven shires of the Kingdom of Kaldor, administered by the Sheriff of Thel on behalf of the King of Kaldor. The River Arguna forms part of the boundary between Thelshire and Oselshire; the river ford on the Kolorn-Jedes road has had an evil reputation since a former constable of Jedes and his family were murdered there some thirty years ago.

Yalen: A stone manor house and a nearby village, both held by Lord Orteyan from the Baron of Novelim. There is an old wooden bridge across the River Tamora at Yalen.

Yeashim: A stone tower and a nearby village, both held by Lord Ercamber from the Earl of Balim.
