Stormy Seas

The City of Dohral was founded by Bennin oz Dohral, a merchant captain and fleet-owner who saw the strategic advantage in placing a supply and repair facility along this dangerous stretch of the mighty Acerian Tradeway. It is said that he had, in his younger day, run afoul of the weather and fetched up on a rocky strand just West of the present day City of Dohral. Rescued soon after the shipwreck, Bennin oz Dohral enriched himself greatly as a merchant over the following decade and returned to the location of his previous rescue. Thus was founded the City of Dohral. Present-day Dohral, now approaching her centennial, is still ruled by descendents of Bennin oz Dohral. The rule is not harsh, though it is rumored, quite lucrative. The people are mostly happy for this veritable isle of stability along a dangerous coast known for past political upheavals. This stability might, in part, be attributed to the Dohral Guard. Bennin oz Dohral enlisted the most notorious mercenary band as his personal guard. Regardless of the cause, the peace was welcomed. Craftsmen craft, vendors vend, sages pontificate, and students (sometimes) take in their lessons. The city of Dohral is a busy hub of activity for the area; bringing in such trade as there is with the Dwarves of the Lake, being ultimately in control of the lumber harvested from the Toltaw Forest, and possessed of all the industries required to repair damaged ships. Business is booming in the City of Dohral. Commerce is at the heart of the City of Dohral, from the local to the far-reaching, she is home to trade. If it is not grown locally, or crafted locally it can certainly be had by trade somewhere in the City of Dohral. Beyond the function of importing goods required by the local populace, and exporting local goods and produce, there occur more subtle connections and transactions that find their home mostly among the fog and shadow of a dockyard by night.

Notes of InterestEdit

The city is a seasonally busy place, and a dangerous one by night at any time of year. It is not unheard of for wizards to 'oversummon' and find a creature out of control, and some of the things you may find on the streets of Dohral fit that category, but too there are other native dangers.

My lucky day, a coin on the cobbles....

Night hags have rarely been seen, as have spectres and ghost at times. Some say there may be a wererat infestation here, others say that werecats come to the city to savor the rats, or maybe it is the milk they really want. Thugs and worse can be found in various parts of the city by night AND ALL ARE ADVISED, ESPECIALLY LOW LEVEL PCS, TO TRAVEL IN THE CITY BY NIGHT ONLY IN GROUPS, OR JUST WAIT FOR DAYBREAK.

You can use the Magic Carpet to travel around all the city's outdoor Areas. This makes a large city that a rogue could vanish in, small enough to hunt for shops with bargains. Other important TRANSPORATION HUBS include the ports themselves (ships can be chartered here) and the depot of VOYANUT'S VOYAGES found in Chonda Port.

Places of InterestEdit

Main article: Dohral City

Within the walls, Dohral is divided into a 4X5 grid. The 'columns' of this grid oriented on the map in a north-south axis, are ordered conveniently from west to east Algrada, Bolovin, Chonda, Donnel, Egbort (A, B, C, D, E). At intervals in these 'districts' divisions are declared and these grid 'rows' are named from south to north, Port, South, Mid, North. Each Area in the city bears one of each of these designations, so you find places such as South Chonda, Mid Donnel and Algrada Port.

Included below are maps of the city Areas, these maps may be outdated in some cases with minor changes occurring since these images were made.


The Rural SwatheEdit

This swathe of land surrounding the city is maintained to keep tree growth minimal, providing clear view for firing of weapons should the city find the need to defend herself from land forces. Over the years, by special permit, some few of the locals have been able to build homes or other structures in this space, facilitating farming of the ground or other essential uses. These structures are all built with the understanding that a defensive action by the city may reduce these outlying structures to rubble. Still, use of this land is too temptingly lucrative so the locals with such permits are happy to have the opportunity to profit from the land use. This bit of land, in easy crossbow shot of the city defenders on the wall, is generally free of all monsters day and night.

Some of the NPCs here are vendors, such as an axe vendor, or woodseller, etc.. PCs should explore some of the options here and get familiar with this space in the shadow of the city defenders. These are good places to practice party exploring skills, riding and other activities. The range of Areas beyond the wall will be given some detail in the sections below, starting from the southern most one west of the city and working around clockwise.


Fishermans StrandEdit

NOT DEPICTED sa part of the 'city map' but actually more to the south of the first 'rural swathe' Area, this is a low wooded hillside overlooking a sandy strand where the city's fishermen beach their craft while not in use. Often referred to as "Fishermans' Point", and also sometimes "No Port", there are a few turf houses to be seen here set into the hillside, and there are frequently fisherfolk working or transiting the spaces here.


Dohral - Western RuralEdit

  • West of Algrada Port:

This space, west of Algrada Port, is one given to a shipbuilding enterprise (civilian craft). Here can be found some number of farmer's fields/gardens on the hillside overlooking the strand below, and a few other resources such as dead trees (drywood). The northern end of the Fishermans' Strand is found here with a few small fishing boats lining the shore when not in use. A stream flows through here, fed from the city moat. *West of South Algrada: The Area includes a small stream fed from the city moat, as well as a number of turf houses and farmers' fields. A roadway begins here, winding its way around the city to the north. Several fruit trees can be found along the base of the hillside, and rumor has it some herbs may be found on the harder to reach spaces. Locals sometimes gather fruits, herbs and drywood on the hillside. Pigs wander this space freely.

  • West of Mid Algrada:

The land here gains elevation to the west, a few fields hugging the lower sides of the hill, a roadway too follows the lower ground as it crossis this Area. Cows graze the space, and fruit bushes are found here along with a low stone hut. The City wall is visible along the eastern edge of the Area, and is bridged to a gate, the moat broadens into a pool at the southern end of this space and is drained via a small stream there to the south.


Dohral - Northwest RuralEdit

  • West of North Algrada:

A roadway follows along the outer wall at a discrete distance, the wall overlooking the moat has a clear view on this route as it makes its way among fields of the local farmers. A small stone hut is found here, along with numerous fruit bushes and trees, some dead trees too can sometimes be scavenged. Pigs and cows forage freely by day.

  • Northwest of North Algrada:

The roadway archs round the corner of the city wall here, where a few fields are seen and are tended by those dwelling in the stone hut not far up the hill from the roadway. Pigs forage here, and cows graze, the place features a few fruit bushes and trees.

  • North of North Algrada:

The city circuit road that exits this Area both east and west is overlooked along the way by the high defenses of the city wall and bulwarks. A gateway the wall and allows access to this road and the road that leads from it to the north. Farm fields and a few stone huts are found here, along with some occasional access to dead trees for firewood.

Dohral - Northern RuralEdit

  • North of North Bolovin

A tangle of fields dot this space crossed by roads, the city ciruit leading off to east and west here is intersected by a road from the north that crosses  past the temple of Numahl. Some cows and pigs freely roam here. A stream flowing in from the north fills a pond and further on fills the moat. The city wall and bulwark dominates the south edge of this Area, being punctuated by a large gateway with drawbridge that bulges out from the wall itself.

  • North of North Chonda:

The main gate and drawbridge of Dohral looms here over the city circuit road and the moat between them, the well known North Road leads off unsurprisingly to the north. A prosperous provisioners' shop is found here, along with a butcher. Travelers have made a tradition of using a strip of land just along the roadway for camping, a meet-up place prior to departing the city precincts. A roadside well here allows access to potable water, numerous fields dot the landscape around the roadway. and a tiny shrine to the God of Travel is found here.

  • North of North Donnel:

A woodseller and a vendor of beasts of burden are located here just off the city circuit road. A great gateway with drawbridge looms up from the massive city walls, in places peering over the moat (which ends in this Area). A broken bit of roadway winds off the main route and departs to the north making its way past a tall stone house which overlooks a corral with two stables just across the roadway. Fields dot this space and a few animals freely graze and forage here.

Dohral - Northeastern RuralEdit

  • North of North Egbort:

Woodworker's shop and home is located here along with that of a poultry butcher. These are located not far off the city circuit road and in view of the lone gateway that punctuates the city wall, itself dominating the south edge of the Area. Farmer's fields dot this space and a few houses can be found here where dwell those farmers. The northern edge of this Area is thick with impassable forest growth.

  • Northeast of North Egbort:

The city circuit road archs round the northeast corner of the city wall here, leading off this Area along the west and south edges. The ground slopes up to the north and east and is thick with impassable forest growth. The ome and shop of a spearsmith is located here in a clearing not far from the roadway.

  • East of North Egbort:

The western edge of this Area is dominated by the city walls, puncutated by a lesser gateway. The city circuit road runs just outside the city wall under scrutinty therefrom, as are the fields beyond and the farmers' houses too farther still. The eastern edge of this Area is thick with impassable forest growth clinging to rough ground and increasing elevations.


Dohral - Eastern RuralEdit

  • East of Mid Egbort:

The western edge of the Area is dominated by the city walls and these are punctuated with a lesser gateway here. The city circuit road runs just outside the city wall, and beyond these the land gains elevations and is cloaked along the east in thick impassable trees. Where the land is reasonably flat and accessable between the roadway and the rugged higher ground, there are a few farmhouses, fruit trees and fields. There are pigs and cows roaming this space.

  • East of South Egbort:

The western edge of the Area is dominated by the city walls and these are punctuated with a lesser gateway here.

Military PortEdit

  • East of Egbort Port:

Here an extention of the city walls wraps around the top of a cliff overlooking the sea. Below, a cove where some miltary craft are safely anchored ready to sail on orders. A rocky bit of land just beyond the walls sports a tall lighthouse, that is the city's crowning local achievement; known as Bennin's Beacon.
