The Dravanian Province, as it is now known, is a heavily fir-forested region once ruled by the Barons and divided into a handful of baronies. The Baronies were seriously weakened by the war between them shortly before the Maw was closed. This allowed the rapidly expanding Kallonian Empire to easily take power, if not control, of the region. The weak and small Barony militia was easily overcome and a Provincial Governor installed. Most of the province is heavily forested and snow covered most of the year, so the poor farmers of the region notice very little difference. The Dravanians are a strong and stout people, but for a long time have been repeatedly afflicted by lycanthropy and vampirism. At least once a generation a serious threat arises, but none of the Crusaders have been able to find the source.
