The Dales Council meets once a year at Midwinter to decide on important matters that affect multiple members of the Dalelands. Each dale sends a delegate to the council to agree upon matter such as trade routes, foreign relations, common defense and various objections against other dales. Lately many meetings have concerned the growing threat of Drow in Cormanthor and the Zhents. The Dales Council is one of the only forms of unification in the Dalelands, and was established under Aencar, the Mantled King.
