Industry & Trade

Most of the food grown here is consumed by the locals. The main export is mineral wealth and timber plus a little bit of reagents.


The Duchy of Dwyns was named after Gorisonad's greatest warheroine during the Swynfaredian conquest of Talama. Given how much effort the sorcress put taking this land, it's too unsurprisingly she became the first the first duchess of the territory.   Nothing gives you a bigger head than getting a territory named after yourself.
