The Elderheim Chronicles
Rodmar is the most heavily fortified state of Arbaster, given that it shares a border with both Oligarve and the Northern Causeway. It is also the smallest state, and so given the large proportion of soldiers is definitely the safest place to live, in peace times.
As a state, Rodmar is even wealthier than Asgrim, despite the latter holding the capital city. This is mainly due to it being a key trade route with Oligarve, with many merchants stopping in the state capital Battleyorn to offload goods.
Rodmar also houses the Drydock, the port from which Arbastan representatives travel to the Trigatica for the annual Elderheim Senate.
