 Firstly, some geographical facts. Fenstre lies in the [[Orstrey]] River delta. The River travels due southeast into the [[the seas|Fairge]] before splitting up into sluggish channels and waterways. This formation creates many islands and Fenstre itself is positioned on such an island. Fenstre'​s island is several miles inland of the Fairge and can be avoided by taking any number of side-channels but the Societor'​s have curtailed this with dykes, dams and weirs. It is impossible to travel either up or down the delta without dealing with Fenstre. Fenstre'​s island is the largest of the deltaic islands. It is also unique in having a granitic base as opposed to the silt and sand of its neighbours. This stony foundation made it prime for settlement by its architecturally inclined original inhabitants;​ the [[Attuned Wind]]. Firstly, some geographical facts.

-The Attuned Wind arrived on the [[Three Rivers]] continent 11000 years ago, the last remnants of an [[odylicism|odylic]] brotherhood that evolved in northern [[Merhulneo]]. Driven from there by desertification and persecution,​ they landed originally in southwestern [[Forosth]] where they established a settlement. They weren'​t a prolific people and the warlike natives they encountered reduced their numbers even further. A peaceful, artistic folk, they countered with odylicism, to be overwhelmed by superior numbers. They fled Forosth and a small group of them settled in the [[Arosd Archipelago]],​ others travelled up the Fairge. They encountered the [[Chird]]a, and then moved up the Orstrey. They met more hostility further inland and retreated to Fenstre where they turned their odylic energies to constructing a city. They had a high and lofty manner to go with their talents at architecture that did not endear them to the more grassroots folk about them. Their population dwindled over the next millennium. ​+The Attuned Wind arrived on the [[Three Rivers]] continent 11000 years ago, the last remnants of an [[odylicism|odylic]] brotherhood that evolved in northern [[Merhulneo]].
