Tain is the northeastern ginnal of Alderode and the origin of pymary. Though long ago most Tainish were killed in conflict with Alderode, some remain and their religion, Ssaelism, has risen. The language New Tainish, or just Tainish, also originated here. The Soud (Gold) came from Tain, and as such do not share a connection to the Dammakhert like other Aldish. The Soud also have typical human lifespans unlike any other sultet.
