Name: Pembroke Manor
Location: Mundane woods west of Anum Taag in the northwest Tuton Maug
Population (approx.): 2,150 (town and surrounds)
Brief: House Pembroke has held their manor and surrounding lands since Noldrune declared independence from Ta’arna centuries ago. The first Viscountess Pembroke was a well-known warrior in service to House Claid and was awarded the lands west of Anum Taag (#37). The current Viscountess Pembroke has a (some say unhealthy) fascination with perpetuating the Pembroke name for years and years to come. To that end, she has encouraged her many children and grandchildren to seek dalliances hopefully leading to marriage or at least children with the longer-lived local Kin, most preferably with the Elves of Anum Taag. Lady Pembroke has been, what she would say is somewhat, and other say astonishingly, successful having three Half-Elven grandchildren and one very different grandchild who might be Half-Wildfolk or even Half-Faerie but no one can tell, and the Viscountess’ daughter so far has refused to name the father. None of her neighboring fellow Nobles are yet sure whether there is a method to her madness or not.
Geography: Pembroke Manor is a pastoral town in the tree-covered hills between the Noldrune plains to the west and the Tuton Maug range to the east. It is about 25 miles west of Anum Taag. Pembroke’s House lands consist of the town and the surrounding 500 square miles of land, home to five manors of vassal Knights and relatives, as well as farms and two smaller villages. Aside from the Viscountess’ oddities, the people of Pembroke are generally genial and friendly, and the land is quiet and the farms bountiful.
