The Vilhon Reach
|Races||Humans, dwarves, elves, lizardfolk|
The Vilhon Reach is a region on the fictional continent of Faerûn in the role-playing game setting of the Forgotten Realms. The region is named after a body of water called the Vilhon Reach, a part of the Sea of Fallen Stars.
Through its many port cities, the Vilhon Reach is established as an essential trade center between the cities of the southern bodies of water, the Lake of Steam and the Shining Sea, and the many kingdoms and city-states around the inner sea of the continent, the Sea of Fallen Stars.
Chondath is a country modelled after Renaissance Italy (although they wear Roman-style armors — image). It is a country with a long history, located in the Vilhon Reach. It is located on what once was the psiocracy of Jhaamdath.
It is presently a confederation of city-states under the capital of Arrabar, but used to be a powerful nation in times long past. It has an estimated 2,000,000 inhabitants, most of whom are humans, but with elven and dwarven minorities.
Waukeen, the goddess of trade, is highly worshipped here. Other important gods are Helm, god of guardians; Lliira, goddess of joy; Malar, god of the hunt; Talos, god of storms; and Tempus, god of war. It is more or less of a plutocracy.
Reth is one of the five free cities which form the city-state of Chondath.
Hlondeth is an independent city-state at the end of the Vilhon Reach which controls a region of mountainous territory to the southwest of Turmish. The city has long had an association with serpents, and is ruled by the Extaminos family, with mixed blood that is not quite human.
The Shining Plains
Turmish is a republic with the capital of Alaghôn, and is located in the north of the Vilhon Reach. The around 1,700,000 inhabitants are mainly humans, but dwarves are common as well, along side minorities of halflings, elves, gnomes, half-elves and half-orcs.
Turmish is modeled after medieval Turkey.
