Tarnal is a small town in a forested part of northeast Tyaen by the border of Manithis. It is unique for a town in Tyaen for many reasons. The most notable is that since the town was originally founded by halflings most buildings are of hobbit design and as built into shallow hills and glades. The unusual nature of the buildings in Tarnal makes a town wall impractical at best. Tarnal is therefore one of the only towns of its size in Tyaen that is unwalled.
Being the main trading outpost with the elven nation of Manithis, Tarnal has a strong elven culture influence. The people of Tarnal are much more progressive and have more of a appreciation of art and theater than the rest of Tyaen.
