Fine food, immaculate fashion, and beautiful artistry are the things that most people associate with Aloure, and indeed, decadence is common among the aristocracy, but the truth of Aloure is much deeper than simple frivolousness. 'The Dance' occurs behind closed doors in every manse and villa in Aloure, where wards have been erected to protect those involved from any form of magical espionage. Every aristocrat, noble and royal engages in the Dance, making cutthroat business deals, currying the favor of those above their station, clawing their way up the ladder of society and weaving webs deeper than most could ever hope to chart.
The wealth of the country of Aloure is obvious in the paved roads, public gardens, and towering statues in the major cities, and in the sweeping vineyards and expansive villas outside of them. Beautiful forests and gentle hills make up the landscape of Aloure, but unlike Grythania, the country is not so wild and untamed. Roads are plentiful, well maintained, and frequently patrolled by soldiers wearing shining half-plate and riding atop powerful horses.
Of course, the vast wealth has drawn many to Aloure's waters who would hope to subjugate and reap, but the queen maintains the largest and most powerful navy in Daearen, ensuring that no pirate, marauder, or conqueror has ever set foot upon their shores.
