The Vale of Arryn
The people of the Vale, popularly called “valemen,” are known as honorable, reliable warriors steeped in honor and the worship of the Faith of the Seven. Some of the valemen living in the foothills of the Mountains of the Moon have rejected the authority of the Eyrie and live by their own rules. These Mountain clans such as The Black Ears and The Burned Men raid unwary travelers.
Wheat, corn, and barley is grown in the Vale. Not even in Highgarden do the pumpkins grow any larger nor is the fruit any sweeter.
