Adventures With Short People
Dondur is the smallest of the Ralan city-states. On the western coast of the Rala Peninsula, it was until recently under Occidental sovereignty.
Nestled between several hills, Dondur traditionally defended itself by means of watchtowers and caches, rather than walls and armies. This openness proved to be a major contributing factor when the Occident exerted their influence in Rala.
The hills and coast which traditionally lie within the Dondurian aegis are productive but not exceptionally so – the truly valuable vineyards are largely controlled by Neo Hampshiria, and there is much competition from the southern and eastern coast of the peninsula in the valuable olive oil trade. Dondur’s main wealth comes from its location as a shipping stopover, as well as proximity to some dwarven communities which have given them a certain amount of influence in the metallurgical and smithing businesses.
