|Land of Bardek|
Bardek (cf. "Bardic") is the Deverry name for an archipelago nation across the Southern Sea from Deverry. Bardekians are of a different ethnic stock than Deverrians, and, as such, have far different customs and views on many social mores. Within Deverry, Bardek is a source of many luxury items, such as spices, rugs, and alcohols, as well as contraband such as drugs and poisons. Slavery is legal in Bardek, as it has not been in Deverry for many years, and is thus a destination for slavers, and a home and refuge for many dark Dweomermen.
