Prophecies of the Dragon
“The more women there are about, the softer a wise man steps.”
Arad Doman is located in the northwest of the Westlands, lying between the Mountains of Mist and the Aryth Ocean. Its capital and principle city is Bandar Eban, located at the mouth of the River Dhagon. Its second-largest city is Katar, near Lake Somal. Due to their distance from the capital, the lords of Katar and the surrounding lands tend towards autonomy and on occasion have to be reminded they are part of the kingdom.
Domani women wear diaphanous, form-fitting clothing considered scandalous in most countries, and have raised the practice of seduction to an art. It is said that Domani mothers begin teaching their daughters this business at an early age. Most Domani merchants are women, and few men can best them in a bargaining session. Most men, however, consider losing to be worth the experience.
Horses are an important commodity, especially the famed “razor,” prized by nobles; however, few Domani will sell them to outlanders.
Domani cuisine consist of meat and vegetables prepared in slivers, to be eaten with two wooden sticks named sursa.
