Tivook Province

Tivook Province is located north of the city of Dohral. This territory is under the control of the city of Dohral by contract with the dwarves of the Eastern Citadel.  Many adventurers pass through the Tivook crossing inn, and the area has been a part of many legends.

Prominent FeaturesEdit

The Lord of Tivook was once a young man when he met the traveling merchant named Bennin oz Dohral. Found as a captive of bandits who had sought to accost the merchant's caravan, the lad was freed and traveled in company of the kindly merchant ever since. His travels with the merchant often found them in some distress, and the lads street-smarts proved of occasional merit in such cases, hence it was that Lord Bennin oz Dohral would eventually reward the man Tivook with a choice Province just north of the city founded by and named for Dohral. Subsequent Lord Tivooks have watched the land, patrolled the roadways and generally acted as the arm of the city beyond her walls.

The land has been left largely undeveloped, save for the roadways that pass through it (meeting at a crossroads aka the 'Tivook Crossing") where the route south leads to the city of Dohral, the east route to the Eastern Citadel and Esrogoth Province, and the west route leading to Humfoodale Province and the lands beyond. A few farms held by relatives of the Tivooks are found along the roadways. The castle of the Lord of Tivook is also located here. Lord Tivook, in spite of his controlling a busy province is a withdrawn person, seldom traveling beyond his castle walls and taking audience only on rare occasion. His lands are rich thanks to the trade that passes with his protection and his generosity is known widely; he even donated the land for the Metrocryptia (where the city of Dohral buries her dead).

Tivook Province is bisected by the Zeethan river. Just south of this river, the humans have created a roadway that roughly parallels the river from the lumber camps to the Eastern Citadel. This roadway is known by two names, east of the Tivook Crossing it is known as the East road, west of the Tivook Crossing it is the West road. A roadway connects this one to the city of Dohral at the Tivook Crossing which is known as the North road. The Tivook Crossing and the Tivook Inn are located approximately at the center of this province.

In the early days of Dohral, when the city was being founded, there was a great need for a supply of wood to be used in that project. The solution devised by Bennin oz Dohral  was to first dedicate a temple to Deeproot (a forest god), then harvest what was needed north of the new city and south of the Zeethan river, while sacrificing regularly in the new temple. The result is obvious in the city of Dohral, and to some eyes, just as obvious in the strip of land north of the city - which is now largely given to small farming enterprises, roadways, a castle, all of which are shot-through with copses and stands of young forest. These days, the trees found in southern Tivook Province are closely spaced young growth (many saplings) which provide few trails of easy access.

Temple of DeeprootEdit

Found on the North Road, just outside of Dohral itself is the Temple to Deeproot. Located on a hillside and comprised of an open air grove, here the altar to Deeproot has been consecrated. It is here that the city populace beseeches the god Deeproot to bless their harvest each year, with great festivals and sacrifices.

East RoadEdit

Located to roughly parallel the river Zeethan, the road follows just south of the waterway. The roadway, except during the timber season, is generally a lonely place, with but a single farm located along the route, this just east of the Tivook Crossing. This road, like many, are the occasional haunt of bandits.

Tivook Southeastern WildsEdit

.

Resources :

  • Herbs.
  • Dry wood.
  • Deer.

Rumours :

  • DEER are found here.
  • WOLVES hunt here.

NOTE ...

Tivook Southeastern WildsEdit

Rough, new growth forest (the region was largely harvested for timber in the time of the building of the city of Dohral). Prior to the founding of Dohral, the dwarves had largely picked over this region for useful timber so there was not much mature timber harvested here even then. Firewood needs sometimes brings the locals to this region. The copses of young trees are often overly dense and impassable in places. This terrain leaves for game trails, implying game and attracting predators too. This strip of land's southern edge abuts on the city of Dohral, and the eastern edge abuts the Esrogoth Province

Resources :

  • Herbs.
  • Dry wood.
  • Deer.

Potential Dangers :

  • Wolves. A pack of wolves are rumored to travel this region.

Rumours :

  • Lord Esrogoth and Tivook have had recent property disputes in this region regarding hunting parties crossing into the others' provincial lands.

NOTE - This is one of the closest (to the city) and most accessible regions for herb gathering.

Tivook Southwestern WildsEdit

Comprised of about 5 Areas of rough, new growth forest (the region was largely harvested for timber in the time of the building of the city of Dohral). Prior to the founding of Dohral, the dwarves had largely picked over this region for useful timber so there was not much mature timber harvested here even then. Firewood needs sometimes brings the locals to this region. The copses of young trees are often overly dense and impassable in places. This terrain leaves for game trails, implying game and attracting predators too. This strip of land's southern edge abuts on the city of Dohral, and the western edge abuts the Humfoodale Province.

  • WOLVES hunt here.

Rumours :

  • WOLVES hunt here.

NOTE - This is one of the closest (to the city) and most accessible regions for herb gathering.

Tivook Northern WildsEdit

This region spans about 15 Areas of somewhat dense forest only slightly older than that south of the river. The dwarves had, prior to the founding of Dohral, used this as the trail to the forests in the west where they would harvest what timber they were able. These dwarven forays were often interrupted (usually while hauling timber) by orc raids. Today the region is overgrown, and crossed by many game trails (implying game and predators). The crossing of the river is not possible in Tivook Province where it is deep and wide.

Resources :

  • Herbs.
  • Dry wood.
  • Deer.

Potential Dangers :

  • ORCs hunt these lands.
  • WOLVES hunt these lands.
  • LIZARDMAN hunt these lands.

Tivook CrossingEdit
