Vedrfell is a small human village, east of Strand. Named "bad weather", the gales that blow in from the bay and around the mountain peaks keep it in a generally unpleasant state. What really cemented the name was the kind of person who would live there; men cast out from Strand for one reason or another, with nowhere else to go. Vedrfell is the last settlement one encounters on his way to Einartoft, along the Wandering Road, once he crosses the Last Gate.
"Vedrfell. Even the name means bad weather, where frozen wind sweeps in from the bay. They tend livestock, but most are just men driven from Strand, with nowhere else to go. Why else would anyone stay? We won't stop long." — Ubin, The Banner Saga, Part One, Chapter 1.
