B-IV: Orchester, Eastern March
The districts west and south of the Aurus river are more farmland, identical to those described in region A-IV. The city itself (the former Ardean city Aurelius) is at the bend of the river and is a strong, fortified mercantile city. It is ruled by a “Duke” who is elected by a senate made up of the noble families, a representative of the Lord Protectors, the spokesman for the trade guilds, and the town bishop. The duke only has a five-year term. The city is a market class III settlement and has good connections with other Hallian cities to the south.
