Transportation

There are several roads leading in and out of Womtham and they are well traveled. But much traffic can also be found on the Duntide river, especially since the devastation of the Greyhawk Wars left so many of the duchy's roads in dire need of repair.

Military

Major contingents of Nyrond's military remain here as Womtham guards the nation's borders along the Flinty Hills and Gamboge Forest, and the Bone March and the Great Kingdom of Northern Aerdy still pose real threats. There are also supposed to be special elven scouting regiments centered on Flinthill and Woodverge, but these elven regiments have not been heard from in some time.

Publishing history

Womtham was little more than a map location prior to 1993, when it was detailed by Carl Sargent in The Marklands (p.82). Maps of Womtham and its undercity appeared in Dungeon #89 (2001) in its semi-regular "Maps of Mystery" feature, though no locations were detailed.
