To Stand Against the Red Moon
Voriof’s Sheepfold is a large shallow bowl of land several miles long, located at the southern end of Illuvan’s Roofbeam. The grass here is lush and fast-growing, and it is makes excellent pasturage for the Orlmarth herds of sheep, which are kept up here from Sea Season through Earth Season. Because this is the center of the clan’s rather meagre wealth, the clan patrols it regularly to keep away sheep-thieves (most commonly the Greydogs, the Arnorings, and the Hillhaven, in that order). It is bordered on the west by a forest and on the east by the slopes of the Little Starfire Ridges.
It is sacred to Voriof, the god of shepherds, and the clan maintains a small shrine to Voriof here. Apart from that, the only structures are a few simple huts for the shepherds and patrolling thanes.
