Balen is a small sea hold on the north side of the peninsula west of High Reaches. Balen is famous for its lumber mills, which saw timbers from High Reaches and its own pine forests into boards. Balen, too, has numerous caverns in which wood is seasoned for building. Skilled wood-smiths here make furniture, as well as fixtures for ships.
Balen Hold was one of the hold invaded by Lord Fax.
