Meadowlands (Stormforge Supplement)
From D&D Wiki
The Meadowlands is the breadbasket of Aerinthia. Fertile fields cover the entire kingdom and small halfling shires dot its landscape. Small forests cover the diminutive hills between the fields and shires. Meadowlands is ruled by a council of community elders, who advise their appointed king. Currently the former king died, leaving an infant heir and orphan. The council has taken over care of the child and the head of the council, Jerham Harrowblade, is serving as regent. Jerham hopes for the day that the infant prince will assume the throne and the daily aches of being regent will be gone. Large portions of the population are halflings.

The rolling hills and central plains of the Meadowlands lies between the Ravenwood, Shieldlands and Stormguard to the east and Aerindor to the west. The southern reaches of the Meadowlands touch the Eternal Ocean, while the northern border rests alongside the Sea of Storms. Every last part of the Meadowlands has felt the touch of a either man or halfling with fertile fields and small groves of trees among halfling shires and human villages.
Simple roads cover the Meadowlands, most are only the width of a wagon, but between major towns a wider stone pathway is often found. The roads in each shire are typically paved in cobblestones. It is also whispered by those who trade with the Halflings often that older roads once crossed the Meadowlands. Those same whispers say that the Elders of each shire know how to find the last roads.
