by Chris "Cthaeh" and Jim "Seguilia"

Welcome to Urnst! Not the Duchy! Come to the County and dwell in peace. There are many reasons DMs and players would venture into our County.

County of Urnst is ideally suited for DMs wanting to set their campaign in an area with a stable, good-aligned government with wild adventure on every border. To the west, the Nyr Drv the lake of unknown depths holds plenty of opportunity for aquatic adventure. The Nesser, Franz and Artonsamay all offer river adventures. Opportunity for urban adventure and political intrigue abound in Radigast City, Trigol and Ventor. The neighboring countries, which include the Duchy of Urnst, Nyrond, Theocracy of the Pale, and The Bandit Kingdoms, give a DM plenty of side quest material.

The County is ruled by a Countess who is rumored to have an extremely comprehensive spy network that keeps her informed of what the neighboring countries are planning. This spy network is allegedly supported by the Rhennee barge folk who assist the Countess in exchange for special considerations.
