The Valley of Truth lies near a coastline. It has muggy weather and thick Shin grass, and shepherds watch their flocks near white cliffsides. The area also has plains with wild horses, as well as simple earthen buildings.
The Valley was the home of Szeth and his family. Around the year 1165 when Szeth was twenty-eight years old, he made claims that the Voidbringers would return. His people refused to believe him; he was deemed Truthless and banished not only from the Valley, but all of Shinovar. He would eventually be vindicated during the True Desolation.
