These scattered villages are built around the Vues'dal Waters.

Description

The villages are built around the Vues'dal Waters because of the fertile volcanic soil that surrounds it, making excellent conditions for farming, as well as fishing in the lake. The villages are under the protection of Syngorn.[2]

Society

Demographics

In 812 PD, the villages had a population of around one thousand, and was primarily elven. By 836 PD, the villages' populations had doubled to over two thousand people living in the villages around the lake; about half are elves, another quarter goblinkin refugees fleeing the Iron Authority, and 12% lizardfolk.[1]

Produce

The Vues'dal villages are renowned for their produce, growing things such as tomatoes, cherries, pumpkins, lentils, and sweet potatoes. This produces is exported to Syngorn, and from there to the rest of Tal'Dorei.[1]

History

Since around the 780s PD[3] the people living around Vues'dal clashed with the lizardfolk in the surrounding marshes. Between 812 and 836 PD however, some of the lizardfolk began to join the small settlements. Additionally, many goblinkin fleeing the Iron Authority settled here as well.[1] The villagers band together to protect from local lizardfolk and human bandits.[1]

In the adventure hook Legions of the Reptile God, these lizardfolk bandits became more aggressive and organized under the leadership of the spirit naga Maledicta Hexos, who united the lizardfolk tribes in the name of Zehir the Cloaked Serpent.[2][1]
