Valduria is a contry made on top of the Old drow kingdom from ancient times. Humans from the island to the south found the desert empty. However they came across many of the buildings and knowledge long lost under the sand. The geography in the desert hints of a time before the sands. Now however valduria is mostly a hot desert kingdom with pockets of civilization spread across the vast plains. This may seem like a land of many hardships. While true, there is a strong sense of union in the culture of the inhabitants. Resting on the religion and a unique practice of "masks" valduria has risen to be one of the most civilized and advanced contries in the world. The biggest trade exports are gems fish and spices. But the biggest source of income is the fine works of engineering. clocks, vehicle and other macines are a luxury item in many areas of the world and the valdurian scholars are the best. One big problem for the contry is the "gloom" a growing magic mist left behind by the drow is slowly spreading from the south. the brightest minds of valduria is engaged in a race gainst time before it reaches one of their major cities.
