Ânul are hills roughly 20 miles wide that stretch from north to south for about 110 miles. They begin near the slopes of Damreth. They are bordered to the west by the swamp Orondir and to the northeast by the great canyon Izen'nâth.
The area is pocked with tunnels, into dead mines, and those still active. The main ores coming out are silver and iron.
Ânul is home to around ten thousand Mongrelfolk. Some of these bestial creatures and others that dwell here have a mild leprosy; the Ânul Rot. They are descendants of those freed by Queen Kjadval in the Year 1420.
