|Etymology: Great land of the hearth.|

Tzulf Bahyrst established the freehold when he founded Bahyrst in 20 Leveerdans +436. The fort of Bahyrst has grown from a formidable redoubt into a sprawling metropolis, heavily segmented into Dwaerkar and Borostím quarters.
The flatlands of Hyrost freehold are dominated by the powerful waters of the Waal, which facilitates the travel of Dwaerkar patrols in the area. This is much necessary, as the Borostím of Hyrost are simple-minded and easily enlisted into the many terrorist cells in the area.
Hyrost is ruled by Gehrman Anderast, Lord of Hyrost, in an autocratic fashion. A proud descendant of Clan Anderast, who first captured the land from its previous elven masters in Ÿphergund's War, Lord Gehrman is happy to comply with the less-democratic traditions of his land.
Cities and settlements
Bahyrst is the capital of Hyrost freehold. One of the few non-mountainous cities of the Dwaerkar, Bahyrst's close proximity to Den Waal means that water-wheels form an integral component of its industry.
