This article is a stub. A longer, more in depth article will be added at a later time.

Steddings are the homes of Ogier. Each is fairly large, typically the size of a large village, or even small town (TGH, Ch. 38) and all are some distance, at least a day, from human inhabitation, though many are more isolated still, days away, in places such as the Spine of the World or Mountains of Mist (LoC, Ch. 20).

Within a stedding, a person is not able to feel the source, much less channel, though the cause for it is unknown. At the center, is usually the remains of one of the great trees, known as the stump. Creatures of the Dark One, and even truly dedicated Darkfriends feel uncomfortable in a stedding (TEotW, Ch. 29). Most inhabited stedding are connected by the Ways, through gateways just outside the borders (TEotW, Ch. 43). Ogier are bound to the stedding, and will die if they spend too long outside them (TGH, Ch. 35).
