Eloysian city-state deep on the outskirts of the Sanjaara Jungle that was once part of the great Eloysian Empire. One of few inland cities inside the Sanjaara Jungle, this city is a veritable fortress, with high walls and tall gates. Dhal Ciona is located on three jutting rocks at the base of two enormous waterfalls. It was originally a simply trading post of the primitive Kunda people, but later expanded into a large independent city-state. The city was one of the first to be conquered by the Eloysians and became an early part of the Eloysian Empire. Due to its proximity to the mountains, the city has always had access to rich, quality iron mines.

Dhal Cionan smiths are famous throughout Avokhar for their crafts in armor, swords, and shields. On a darker note, the Dhal Cionans use their trade goods to arm slaving bands which operate deep in the Sanjaara Jungle, annually capturing thousands of Tasloi. The Slave markets in the city are extremely large. virtually all of the city's exports travel downriver to the city of Dhal Viera, whose "middle-men" merchants pay handsomely for them and has made Dhal Ciona very wealthy.

Today, this city is fully independent, and has become wealthy via trade with its closest neighbor; the city of Dhal Viera.
