   “The Lodge” was the name commonly given to the military outpost located towards the northern end of the La Hoya Pass on route 5 south of Gabah.  It was given the name "the Lodge" because of its extravagant amenities and in part because of its heritage.  

 

   History:  In the days of King Leonid before the craft had entirely died out, stone cutters from the Cannor came to this site to build a hunting lodge for the then prince of La Hoya.  For the exterior they used smooth stones from the Elentil riverbed for the walls and cedar timbers as pillars on the porch.  For the interior they imported the finest black marble from the eastern quarries for the floor, porcelain for all the basins, and silk tapestries painted by a famous artist.  The court of Cannor had even appointed servants to tend to the mundane duties of cleaning, washing, and cooking. 

    

   Site Description:  The Lodge is situated in the lush northern end of the La Hoya Pass with Route 5 trailing off into a thick forest to the north and rolling foothills to the south.  Next to the outpost is a large fish-filled lake fed by two streams from the highlands and emptied on the other side that eventually runs into the River Ressel.  The lake is a resting spot of the migrating cloisonné crane and a nesting ground for duck-billed dinosaurs, which were to be hunted only by royalty according to a strictly held law.
