County of Ulek
by Jay "Lord Gosumba" Scott
Campaigning within The County of Ulek can lead to multiple types of adventures, including combative, financial, investigative, or discovery. This area allows for adventuring opportunities in a realm based in a Demi-human culture; in this case, Halflings and Gnomes of the Flanaess.
The lands of the County will remain stable irrespective of the timeframe of your Campaign (pre-Greyhawk Wars, post-Greyhawk Wars, and alternate timelines). In addition, the realm borders long standing lands such as Keoland and the Duchy of Ulek, so trade routes and commerce should be regarded as important topics. Examples of this would be mining in the southern Lortmil Mountains.
The County of Ulek is described in the Glossography as “cosmopolitan”, yet there are very little towns, villages, and cities actually detailed. This allows for a great amount of development as your adventuring continues into a full-fledged Campaign setting.
