The Avinyar is a region in eastern Akaryth, occupying the land between the River Alayne and the Garanflow, marking the border with Ravenna and Rhaensag. It is the kingdom's East
Avinyar is famous for the quality of its agricultural products, especially wine, wheat and cheese.
The region's capital is the city of Solstrom, formerly the center of an independent kingdom until coming into the fold of the growing Akaryth in 668 AS.
Today, Avinyar forms the entirety of the eastern province of Akaryth, and is ruled by the Senechal of the East, Prince Guy of Lustare.
Avinyar is a vast region of low, rolling hills; verdant, fertile fields; and sprawling forests. It's climate is gentle, with warm, long summers and shorter, easier winters than experienced elsewhere in the kingdom. It is well watered as well, receiving some of the waters of the distant Ironfists, and serving as part of the vast drainage system that comprises most of the kingdom. The delta of the Garanflow occupies a great portion of the seaward part of the region and is surrounded by rich, arable land and pastoral and agricultural communities.
The arable land of the region is incredibly rich and fertile. The quality of its wines are celebrated throughout Amallon; its dairy products--especially the local elemey, a sharp, aged cheese--are also celebrated. Avinyar produces more than it consumes, and its great agricultural base provides a source of prodigious wealth for the province.
The center of the region is occupied by a wide, open plain, broken only occasionally but a lone, low hill, through which the last stretch of the Garane River (Garanflow) crawls toward the sea. The province's capital, Solstrom, rests in this great plain.
As one of Akaryth's four provinces, Avinyar is ruled by the Seneschal of the East, currently Guy of Lustare. Beneath his all-encompassing authority are the nobility of the region, from Dukes down to Barons, who rule over their own small pieces of the land. While the Keledoni nobility swear their fealty upwards through the ranks of the nobility, the Akarthans instead pledge fealty directly to the king himself.
