Verbobonc in the Living Greyhawk campaign

In the Living Greyhawk campaign, Verbobonc corresponds to the states of Illinois and Indiana. It pioneered a system for allowing Living Greyhawk player characters to develop towns, open businesses, and establish strongholds, something previously beyond the scope of the Living Greyhawk campaign. Player-created towns include Cienega Valley, which is located in the Kron hills and is known for its fine wines and Irondelve, a subterranean Dwarven community beneath the Lortmill mountains.
