The Stines Creek runs north from Duptblid until it becomes the Stines River at Elvhaven. It eventually empties into Lake Orent.
Venrike is sparsely populated, with just over 100,000 peasants. Nearly two-thirds of the population lives in the southern hills or coastal plain. Most of the rest herd cattle or horses on the northern plain. Venrike has no major cities, though the harbor town of Hoyhuffen almost qualifies.
Shatterstone's Tomb is located on the northern edge of the southern hills, hidden in a cave behind a no-mana zone.
The following elements can be recruited in Venrike at these troop qualities:
|Battle Mages||Poor||Human||1 per 50 elements|
|Cataphracts||Poor||Human||Only in the northwest|
Unlike neighboring Hanist, Venrike has no strong tradition of Militia service or rebellion. The northern plains make it nearly impossible to train without the orcs noticing, and even in the southern hills, few people make the effort to train. Levies raised from the northern plains are Rabble+ with cavalry, and Levies raised from the southern hills are Rough Wardens.
