Heroes of Laketown
The riverine city of Shrel-Kain is the cultural and commercial center of Rhovanion. Gaerendil Cirya is the current Master of the city.
From its location, some twenty miles north of the mouth of the Fola Salenin, the capital dominates the two most important trade routes in northern Rhûn: the river passage that links Rhûn to the markets of Rhovanion, and the road that connects the fields of Folyavuld with the Logath town of Sadvar. Indeed, Shrel-Kain represents both a literal and historical cross-roads to its citizenry, for one need only travel a mile down-river to see what remains of the old capital, the site of so much oppression in the darker days of the Second Age. With its graceful arched bridges and cosmopolitan air, Shrel-Kain stands as a reply to that older city and a testament to the resilience of it citizens.
