Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #37
Feb 6th 2023
Name: Anum Taag (“Ancient Beings”)
Location: Northwestern slopes of the Tuton Maug range.
Population (approx.): 3,000 to 4,000
Brief: Although smaller in stature to the mountains of the northern ranges beyond the Narrows, the mountains of the south are far far older. Within their ancient borders can be found some of the oldest flora and fauna on Aenwyld. The Anum Taag is such a climax forest of towering trees, dense foliage and long-lived Elven Kin households within. These Elves are careful and canny folk, having avoided conflict with all prior and current claimants to the surrounding lands. But they zealous guard the borders of Anum Taag hence few have had the chance to experience the splendor of their lands.
Geography: The Anum Taag is an area of forest approximately 80 miles in diameter (about 5,000 square miles) covering the northwest foothills of the Tuton Maug. The ancient trees tower hundreds of feet into the air, visible miles away, filling the gaps between the hills and clustering in the valleys. Rumor and whisper suggest the Anum Taag is more than just a forest but some sort of community of linked flora or perhaps even a single entity of vast scale. Over a dozen Elven settlements are scattered throughout, under and among the branches and boughs, each being home to 200 to 300 Elves.
