The firs is that there are gems and precious metals in the mounts of Laroche.
The second is the Ducal Family of De la Roche. Widely regarded as one of the most politically adept families who excel in the Shadow Arts, the Snakes of the North as they are sometimes called are regarded by the rest of the noble families of the Empire as a dangerous and rather exotic breed.

Demography and Population
Population: 3 million as of the last sensus.
The bulk of the population live in the close to Talvis, the only town of any size in Laroche. The Rullara clans that still exists in their clan structure live to the north of the Rocaille. Those Rullara clans that used to live between Rocaille and Talvis have largely adopted the culture of the mixed race Empire.
