Dros Viviane Settlement in The Distorted Lands | World Anvil

Dros Viviane

  • four main water channels leading away: three go to farming (Earra⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ), one acts as general water supply.


The dominant species is Venira⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ . Hooman⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ are the minority species. Vapal⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ have an enclave, but there is only a group of Rurid⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣


As with all settlements Dros Viviane is governed by the Ven'Ir. In the city there are 15 Ven'Ir.

Due to its size it also acts as the centre for the Ven'Ir conclave in Karra.


The biggest defensive measure is Karra⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣, with it's large, easily defensible dunes. Because Dros Viviane lies in a relatively flat area, any defence is set up further out with supply lines to the oasis, essentially making it a reverse siege, where the attackers need to get through or they'll die due to a lack of water and food.

Industry & Trade

Due to its relatively central location in the desert Dros Viviane has turned into the crossroads for both north-south and east-west trade. This has allowed two large markets to establish itself.

The larger one consist mostly of buildings and smaller warehouses where merchants trade between each other. The smaller one is a network of sunshades under which the local population trades everyday items.

In the case of the smaller market trade is conducted using currency (Anteall⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣) while at the larger one goods are exchanged.

Guilds and Factions

A few temples (Lux⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ , Alta⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ and a few others). Order of Lost Causes⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ also present.


Dros Viviane has long stood as a hub for trade, but before contact with Xalna⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ was established this was mostly east-west trading. During the golden age north-south trade allowed the city to grow and acquire wealth.

During the War of Misunderstanding⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ the city acted as the central point in conflict for the desert. It was never captured, but some of it's wealth and splendour was lost.

After the war the city recovered relatively quickly and it is now considered by some to be as magnificent as it was before.


The city is situated in a relatively flat part of Karra that is lower than the surrounding dunes. The dip is what has allowed the large oasis in the centre of Dros Viviane to exist.

Natural Resources

Water is the most important resource in the desert, and Dros Viviane has a lot of water in the form of the oasis. The water distribution is closely monitored.
