Falinesti is the strange, walking city of the Bosmer king. It can be found in one of four locations within Valenwood, depending on the season; most maps show the city at the location of its summer site. The city occupies the branches of the largest graht-oak in Valenwood, whose magic was created at the dawn of recorded history. The Camoran throne is located in the highest of branches, along with many Bosmer dwellings. Bosmer, Orcs, and Imga are its main inhabitants, with few humans having the nerve to remain in the city for long. During the second Aldmeri Dominion, the Thalmor moved Valenwood's capital from Falinesti to Elden Root after the city mysteriously disappeared.
According to Decumus Scotti's account in A Dance in Fire, the Havel Slump district observes a day of revelry every Morndas. Furthermore, the Western Cross is perilous at night due to the presence of hoarvors, which feed on the bodies of the drunks left over from the night before.
- Arena was originally conceived as a fighting game featuring a tournament that took the player to each of Tamriel's cities to challenge different gladiatorial teams. According to a file from that stage of development left behind in the final game, Falinesti's gladiatorial team would have been called "the Wyverns".[oog 1]
