Lainlyn is a city in western Hammerfell, in the Alik'r Desert, on the eastern bank of the Iliac Bay.

In the mid-Second Era, the city was called Tava's Blessing and was later renamed after the Lainlyn family.[1] During that time, it was home to one of the most important shipyards of the Daggerfall Covenant. In 2E 582, most of the citizens were killed and raised as Ra-Netu by the cultists of the Withered Hand, but the cultists were driven away shortly afterwards.[2]

In the early Second Era, as well as in the late Third Era, the town was the capital of the Barony of Lainlyn.[3] Its official military force was the Host of the Horn.[4] During the Imperial Simulacrum in the late Third Era, Lainlyn was an active settlement, being under the rule of Lord Glavt. It had a rivalry with Chasetown.[5] It was neighbored by several settlements, including Sentinel in the west, and Vulnim Gate in the southeast.[6]

After the Warp in the West, Lainlyn came under the dominion of Sentinel.[7]
