Ronfaure is an region of northern Quon in Final Fantasy XI. This region mostly consists of the vast woodlands that surround the Kingdom of San d'Oria. Once a race predominately made up of hunters, the Elvaan still value their ties to the forest by protecting it—even though the thick foliage leaves them vulnerable to sneak attacks by enemies who lurk in its shadows.
When the kingdom was at its peak, the knights would lead patrols through the trees, maintaining peace throughout the land. But now, the weakening lion of San d'Oria no longer has the power to assure the safety of those who travel through the forest; the region has become a hiding place for ravenous Orcs and thieving Goblins. During the Crystal War this region was incorporated into the Ronfaure Front.
Because this region is directly adjacent to one of the starting nations, most of its content is geared to low-level jobs and new player characters. For this same reason, it is often the site of holiday events to ensure easy access to players of all level ranges.
This region is subject to Conquest. Due to its proximity, it's extremely rare for the Kingdom of San d'Oria to lose control of this region.
"Ronfaure" is the ancient Elvaan word for "rabbit hole".
