The town of Dulwich serves as the capital for the Duchy of Ashlar, as this is where Duke Gouth ahs his manor, and where he spends the most of his time. The town serves as a central garrison for the Duke's personal forces, from which they patrol the rest of his lands, and is also the economic hub of the whole duchy, with a major market on 6 days out of 7.
In addition to its role as the main market town of the duchy, the town also plays host to a renowned school of magic, the Arcane College of Dulwich which is known for the Abjurers and Transmuters that it trains. The Church of Rao has a holy site on the edge of town too, the Temple of Serenity, renowned to be the site where an avatar of Rao walked Oerth during the earliest years of the Great Kingdom, bestowing his blessing upon that august nation and allowing it to annex surrounding lands with minimal bloodshed. Pilgrims come here from all over the western Flaeness seeking solitude and peace in the cells of the temple, where they can seek guidance of Rao and converse with the priests on any and all matters that are affecting them.
