The kingdom of Vadaunk is a city-state at the Dancing Shoe Mountains' westernmost tip. Vadaunk is also known as the "mercenary kingdom".[1]


Vadaunk is notable for its culture of superstitious, cyclic repression that occurs with the changing of the seasons.[2]


Since the end of the Pirate Wars, Vadaunk has been part of the long, arduous trade route between the city-states on the east and west sides of the Cacotopic Stain, although the preferred trade route bypasses the city.[1]

In addition, the kingdom had sporadic trade with the Iron Council during its journey through western Rohagi. [3]
