The west outpost is the name given to the clan outpost in the Thaldein Mountains. The outer summer settlement consists of ramshackle cabins hidden in a stream-threaded ravine. This protects a fortified inner section in the mountains.

Role in the Story

Spoiler warning: Contains plot elements from multiple books in the series.

Curse of the Mistwraith

Third Age 5637: Lady Maenalle and her clansmen meet Lysaer s'Ilessid for the first time here. They throw a banquet for the prince in the inner section.

Ships of Merior

Third Age 5644: Jieret and his clansmen travel here to meet with Lady Maenalle. The author has stated that this event took place at the west outpost, even though it isn't explicitly identified as such in the book.[1] Jieret's men marvel at the settlement's similarity to a village, since the clans of Rathain are more persecuted than those in Tysan and cannot establish permanent roots.
