Before the Darkest Hour
This strip of fertile hills lining the central region of Aluar Hinterlands is famous for wineries and vineyards that produce the one of a few famous Halruaan export commodities – Haerlu wine. The wine road passes through the region, connecting the port town of Aluarim with Eichul. Before the Mulhorandi invasion, there were numerous inns along the road offering the traveler a place to stay, eat and a possibility of numerous wine tastings. Today however, only the inns west of The Five Grapes Inn remain – marking the spot where the Mulhorandi advance towards Alaurim and the river Aluar was halted.
Although the wizards of Aluarim have made efforts to help rebuild, the wine road east of The Five Grapes is lined with building carcasses and burnt vineyards. Undead Horse columns of Mystra`s Legion hunting for Mulhorandi stragglers are still a common sight.
