Cryngaine Field (pronounced kree-gain[1]) is a region found in southern High Rock. It is known for its flowering meadowland.[2] It is located near the Fiefdom of Anticlere, but it is specifically found between the Ravennian Forest and the Yeorth Burrowland. It is most well-known for the Battle of Cryngaine Field, the final confrontation in the War of Betony, between the kingdoms of Daggerfall and Sentinel.[2][3]


In 3E 403, Lord Graddock of Anticlere attempted to host a parlay between King Lysandus of Daggerfall and King Camaron of Sentinel, to end the War of Betony on proper terms. However, the meeting went awry and the town was left in ruins. Their armies had split to the Ravennian Forest and the Yeorth Burrowland respectively and met in combat at the Cryngaine Field. In the midst of the battle, the Dowager-Queen Nulfaga ordered her dragon-familiar, Skakmat to shroud the battlefield in an unnatural fog. In the blinding fog, it was reported that King Lysandus was killed by a stray arrow and the War of Betony was over.[4] Ever since the battle, a monument dedicated to Lysandus was erected in the Cryngaine Field.[5]
