Heralded as the City of Acceptance, Garinham has long been a haven for those outcast by the mainstream. Centuries ago, the main trade route through the valley shifted to run through Garinham. Since that time, Garinham has grown from a strange village to one of the most prominent leaders in the valley.
Garinham is a Republic, with 36 leaders representing 12 different segments of the city. A Baron, from the family who originally settled Garinham, acts as the Executive for the ruling body.
Garinham was named for its first guest, Garin Yuin, a half elf trader. Garin helped the founding family develop its reputation for peaceful acceptance and co-existence.
