Founded by religious pilgrims that came to the Valley to build an ideal community of faith. Proveenia has a grand temple to Pelor second in size only to that in the capitol of the old kingdom. Because the famous paladin Brannock Proveen is buried beneath a monument, the town once received its share of pilgrims. Proveenia was once a Major Religious Center, the point of pilgrimage for many people. Now not many people come, but there is a strong religious influence still. Located on a river and the intersection of two roads, the town gets much of its economy from trade. Proveenia is in the south eastern portion of the Valley, not far from the foothills.
The Miners Guild is a major economic and political enity in Proveenia, with its own guards.
