The mystical forests of Dalentarth are the heart of power for the Summer Fae as these beings increasingly withdraw from advancing mortal civilization. Dalentarth is home to the Summer Fae capital the Gardens of Ysa, the seat of the only remaining active Summer Fae house, the House of Ballads is here, as is Caer Nyralim, home of the world tree Nyralim. In recent years, Almain settlers have come to Dalentarth from the west and founded villages and missions dedicated to the worship of Mitharu throughout the forests, and the Almain now live uneasily side-by-side with the Fae. Recently, the region has been troubled by the depredations of the Red Legion, a group of mostly human bandits that practice blood rituals to ensure the loyalty of their members.
Dalentarth is the westernmost region of The Faelands that can be visited in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. Routes lead east to the Plains of Erathell and south-east to Detyre, there is a passage through the mountains to the south leading into the Teeth of Naros. The region is subdivided into ten areas, it includes three Almain villages (Gorhart, Canneroc and Didenhil), three Almain missions to Mitharu (St. Odwig's, St. Eadric's and St. Hadwyn's), the Warsworn stronghold of Shieldring Keep, and the Travelers Star Camp. All of the places associated with the House of Ballads, are located in Dalentarth. The Gardens of Ysa is the region's largest settlement, and includes an outpost of the Scholia Arcana.
