Dorinvar is a small, independent Freehold, located in the Reach, on the Pirate Coast of the Sea of Ralas.

The freehold profits from trade along both the Axeway and Saltcliffe Road, which intersect at the fortified town of Erendias.

In return for independence, the freehold patrols the southern region of the Reach, the coastal areas east of the Cairn Mountains, and both roads.

To do this, the Freehold maintains a mixed force of 1,200 dwarvish and human mercenaries to protect its territory.

It is common to see dwarvish and human merchant caravans stop here on their travels north to Crôm Feyr, south to Rastios, or west into Skarlahn Feyr.

The freehold has a few small iron mines that provide some income, but most of the region's wealth is still derived from tariffs on goods passing through the freehold.

Many outsiders resent the high tariffs, but few raise objections, because it is common knowledge that Dorinvar has the backing of the royal court of Serathyr.
