The tower

Tel Aruhn has a long history behind it. It is one of several locations that were built by the original Aldmeri explorers to the region,[1] along with Ald Redaynia, Bal Fell, and Tel Mora.[1]

It is known that a number of famous characters resided here. For instance, the great axe master Alfhedil once resided here, and helped train Ellabeth, the Queen of the Axe.[2]

The Plot and Plaster, an inn of this town, is a location in the book Unnamed Book,[3] and part of the events in 2920, vol 11 - Sun's Dusk take place in this town.[4] The book Three Thieves features this location as well.

The city is ruled by Archmage Gothren, who is the "Lord High Magus of Telvanni Council."[5]
