One of the three provinces of the Dominion, it is the region where the living remain safest and strongest, nestled within the great walls of Thraben. While settlements on the outskirts are constantly under assault, Thraben and the Council Gardens remain relatively safe. Smaller towns radiate outward from Thraben across Gavony’s rocky moors. Small copses of trees dot the landscape of rolling hills and heaths.
Because more of the dead are buried here than anywhere else, Gavony is plagued by ever-growing undead hordes. Necromancers and Stitchers ply their unholy trade even inside the walls of Thraben while secret cults conspire to serve demonic powers.
Gavony was the original homeland of the Praesidium of Thraben centuries ago. Upon its collapse, the dragon Auriastra handed control of the shattered empire to the Owlish Council, and the seat of power remained in Thraben.
