Few does not mean three or more. "couple" would not be used because it consistently means two, and would imply an exact number for each clan. Few also behaves interestingly when you apply it to a big group like 7 dwarf towns. I'd argue that 7 clans with 12 towns have a "few towns each", but even if you insist that "few" means "multiple", 15 would easily fit the description of "a few publicly known entrances".
