Flora and Fauna: Like most Bellissarian kingdoms, Veroth's animal and plant life was largely brought in from elsewhere. A large portion of the country consists of plains and light forests, and thus one may find many typical woodland animals, such as deer, foxes, squirrels, birds, and bobcats. Wolves are not unknown, but rare. Most of the plant life consists of varieties of deciduous trees (particularly cherry, oak, and maple), grasses, and shrubs. Those regions settled by the Verothians also contain vineyards.

Last Year's Events: Because Veroth did not have much of an economy-and fortunately for it Notrion suffered from a great depression so the Verothians could acquire food well below market prices-it made use of its major resource-military-as was demonstrated by number of Verothians who became sellswords or sellspells at the various hot spots of Nayce-notably Esterhold.
