”This is not a good time. Our troops still haven’t recovered from those Vendis raids last fall, and with the fires in the granary this winter...
Vendis is a place or culture on Nalthis circa 327. General Yarda mentions to King Dedelin of Idris that the Vendis raids inflicted damage on the Idrian army, and the Idrians still had not recovered.
Judging from the similarity of its name to Idris, Vendis could be a place in the mountains near Idris, and often raided the Idrians. However, it could also be a group of people, rather than a place or country.
