The area of Green Vale is the homeland of the nation of Rahhail, and it is the productivity of this valley that has allowed Rahhail to thrive historically, and to become the envy of its neighbours, the much larger Kingdom of Sharisar and the Kingdom of Dazscor and Aramore. Much of the valley has been given over to agricultural practices, though there is a large and growing area in the west that is being exploited for its mineral wealth. Nevertheless, Green Vale is viewed as an idyllic pastoral valley, where most of the landscape has been tamed and is carefully managed.
Fauna & Flora
Given the heavy agricultural use of the land in Green Vale, the majority of the flora in the area is managed as part of the agricultural process. The farmers of Rahhail maintain large fields of wheat, barley and other cereal crops, but the most famous agricultural products of Green Vale are fruit, with the valley, particularly along the lower slopes of the flanking hills being covered in carefully planted orchards of apples, pears and citrus fruits. As with the flora, the fauna of Green Vale is heavily weighted towards animals involved in agriculture, with a focus on sheep and goats that are used to control vegetation and keep it from encroaching on the orchards. Larger wild animals tend to be a relatively rare sighting in Green Vale, as many of them are unable to establish significant populations beyond the boundaries of the deciduous forest that lines the top of the valley’s flanking hills. Smaller wild animals, rabbits in particular are quite commonly sighted in Green Vale, but they are regarded as pests that damage crops, and almost all Rahhailian farmers will pay local children armed with slings to kill any rabbits they come across, the meat of which is a staple on Rahhailian tables.
