|Titles||'Gentle Dalun' (derogative)|
Source: Irrisen, Land of Eternal Winter, pg(s). 38
Though Dalun strongly encourages trade with the outside world, which is essential for Irrisen's survival, its diplomatic efforts are ruined because of the Irriseni raids launched from Redtooth and Saarbotten in the Verge to the west. Indeed, Dalun is derisively called 'Gentle Dalun' by the people of Saarbotten despite the fact that Dalun supplies most of Saarbotten's food.
Baroness Nadya is the ruler of Dalun. She has tried to foster stable trading relations with Southmoor and Varisia but not with great success. Dalun is responsible for supplying Redtooth and Saarbotten with grain and other foodstuffs. Nadya's bloodthirsty sister, Urgalaena, baroness of Saarbotten, often sabotages Nadya's diplomatic attempts. Lady Nadya's chief steward, Betrona Harcatha, is actually a spy for her sister Urgalaena.
