Thurien is an elven nation in the northern reaches of Balosh. The elves of Thurien trade with the humans of Ostend, Napoli, and Jaan. They maintain tenuous but peaceful relations with the dwarves of Hrothland. They are hostile to the more conservative elves of Lothlorien, a tradition dating back to an ancient schism of the elven race. Thurien is home to a large population of gnomes, who live in harmony with the elves.
