Valdorian Age - Rising Power on the Frontier
Unlike the sleepy towns and hamlets that exist in most of Valdoria, Veur Town is a hustle and bustle of merchants and traders. Although it’s not nearly as immoral as Elweir, men cannot remain totally righteous in the face of so much coin, and over the centuries the rulers of the Duchy of Elan have struggled mightily to keep the town from descending to greedy lawlessness.
Of course to a Valdorian, “greedy lawlessness” means a man must haggle with merchants, make sure they’re honest, and keep a close watch on his pouch for fear of cutpurses. Most in Elweir find Veur Town’s so-called lawlessness laughable. One way the rulers of the Duchy of Elan have accomplished this is to ensure the town’s leader and high-ranking guardsmen come from elsewhere in Elan. Sir Rurik Lanard, Duke Gimli Lanard’s third eldest son, currently rules Veur Town.
