Dol Angra is a river valley and a valuable trade route for Lyria, Rivia, Aedirn, Dol Blathanna and Kaedwen with the south. The trade route crosses the Yaruga roughly mid-course, where it is at its most shallow and continues north to the Pontar and Temeria. The valley lies to the east of Maribor and has witnessed many skirmishes including the battles at Aldersberg and the taking of Glevitzingen, generally regarded to have started the war.
| Dol Angra is a wide valley, a route leading from the south to the kingdoms of Lyria and Rivia, to Aedirn, and further to Dol Blathanna and Kaedwen... and through Pontar Valley to us, to Temeria.
