The Vale

Work in Progress


The Vale is one of the major factions in AWOIAF in Westeros. The Vale can be located North-East of the Westerlands, East of the Riverlands, and South-East of the North. The Vale is an extremely mountainous region and is protected by the hulking landmasses that span their entire southern and western border, with few breaks in-between. With the mountains protecting the West and South of The Vale, their East and North are protected by the ocean, which means that not only are they naturally defended on all sides but they also are able to turn a good profit off of fishing. Because of the vast mountain ranges that is in the area The Vale is rather isolated and has been for many years, and because of that they have formed their own unique culture from the rest of Westeros. Several gates guard the passages into The Vale, and prevent would be invaders from getting very far.

Troop Tree

The Vale specializes in heavy cavalry and heavy infantry, with a sub par archer unit. Vale cavalry are extremely powerful, almost as good as heavy cavalry from The Reach. The difference between The Reach and The Vale is that The Vale has a good infantry force as well, making them one of the more powerful factions in Westeros. When fielding an army of Vale units it is wise to utilize the mixture of Heavy cavalry and Heavy infantry to the best of your abilities. It would be smart to use your infantry to lure the enemy cavalry into open combat and then send your cavalry around their horsemen to run through their archers and infantry.

Extra Information

No army has ever actually marched through The Vale due to their hills and gates.

The Vale was the only kingdom besides The North to bend the knee to the Targaryens without bloodshed.

The Vale is a good place to find plate armor in shops, another good place being The Reach.

If you go into the eerie castle and jump through the moon door you can survive the fall and explore the unfinished map underneath. There is also a maester down there oddly enough.

Recruiting units from The Vale

In order to recruit Vale units from villages you own as an independent kingdom you will need to select a Vale race on character creation. Vale units can be recruited from villages regardless of player status unless they are hostile to The Vale. Additional ways to recruit Vale units is to rescue them from enemy lords parties, find them in taverns, or rescue them from enemy garrisons.
