Geographical description of territory

Founded in a secluded area of Manticore between a large lake to the west and a large forest to the east, New Greyhawke is the home of the Fourth Space Lord of the Royal Manticoran Navy.

Arrgus

The central city of Arrgus is home to Dragon Systems, the software development firm launched by the ancestors of the Baron New Greyhawke. Tourists, however, come to Arrgus to pay a visit to the entertainment district known as The Scale.

The Scale

History says that this area of Arrgus became known as The Scale because buildings had to be very tall due to a rather limited area of land. Others say it is because it was, at one time, a rougher part of town. Whatever the origin, it is now the entertainment district of Arrgus and is widely known for the many businesses which create games and the stores that sell them.

Dragon Systems

Dragon Systems is the single largest business in New Greyhawke and is homed in Arrgus. What began as a game development company became a developer of simulation systems. Specifically, simulations of hazardous work environments for training purposes.
