Farmlands of Ghal Pelor
Ghal Pelor has numerous agricultural communities that dot its territory but the majority of them can be found in a region just northeast of the city along the road to Homestead. While these communities fall under the rule of Ghal Pelor they ultimately have to fend for themselves against a number of hardships. They also owe taxes to Ghal Pelor which are paid for in gold or credit toward crops and labor. The city government uses these taxes and credits to feed the military and administration as well as to guard against inflating prices of food for the general population. The rural regions find themselves disenchanted with politics in the region. They are without proper representation in the greater government and have little say in what they can sell their crops for. While Ghal Pelor is often viewed as a generally free city it takes a very strong stance against price gouging for vital resources. They are also preyed about by bandits rather frequently. Local communities are allowed to hire sheriffs and protect themselves but guarding the roads and wilderness officially falls to the Army of Ghal Pelor. And the army is most often tasked with guarding Ghal Pelor proper and the border territories in the regions near Lockland and the Butcheryards of the Dougals.
Humans and halflings make up the majority of the farming populations here. Gnomes travel and settle this area frequently as well. Dwarves and elves are not commonly seen living here

Guilds and Factions
No notable factions exist in this region
When Ghal Pelor was first founded it relied entirely on agricultural support from Ghal Ankhar. As the city grew and more human and halfling citizens settled in farms began to pop up and supply the city directly. It is from these early pioneers that the city's farming region grew. During the Queen's War a number of these communities were burnt down or enslaved in an attempt to starve the city of resources. The combined might of Ghal Pelor and Ghal Ankhar ensured that this tactic saw little success
Mainly simple human structures. The Seward estate is the largest known structure in the farmlands to survive to modern times.
