AD&D - New World
Description: Largely unsettled wildlands, the central point of the Grudgewood region is Grudgewood itself: once a backwater mining outpost near some abandoned ruins, Grudgewood has become a bastion of hope for humanity.
Enemies: Fort Hangtooth Region, Cano City
Special Conditions: A trade route with the Oakenburgh province in Rittersmarch brings lumber to Grudgewood, and sends silver to Oakenburgh.

Law: Red Al and the Barrow Knights split control of Grudgewood-proper, but more than once their forces have come into physical conflict. There has been little bloodshed, but tensions continue to rise. Elsewhere in the domain, roaming forces loyal to the Duke of Bark patrol what is mostly wilderness.
Temples: (temple of martiff))
Guilds: Mayor Mammarie oversees most legitimate businesses, including banking, Grudgewood trade, and the Canicus Dias School. Red Al keeps a finger on “illegitimate” trade in the region.
Sources: Drea the Frowzywig is the primary arcane power in the domain, and has claimed the tower at Eddistone Point as her own. Along the southern cliffs, the Duke of Bark holds sway.
