In the World of Greyhawk campaign setting, the Yeomanry, properly known as the Yeomanry League, is a political state of the Flanaess.

History

Geography

The modern Yeomanry is located in the southwestern portion of the Flanaess. It is nestled entirely within a broad basin bounded by the Jotens to the north, the Crystalmist Mountains to the west and south, and the Little Hills to the east. The valley passage between the Little Hills and the Tors leads directly into the Hool Marshes. A long cave system know as the Passage of Slerotin tunnels under the Hellfurnaces from the town of Dark Gate in the Yeomanry, finally emerging over 200 miles away into the Sea of Dust.

As of 591 CY, the most populous towns are Loftwick (pop. 8,400), Longspear (pop. 7,700), Farvale (pop. 4,400), North Reach (pop. 3,700), and Westburn (pop. 2,500).

People

Population

As of 591 CY, the population of the Yeomanry totaled 305,900 persons, almost 80% being humans of Suel and Oeridian descent. Halflings (predominatly Stouts) make up the next largest group (9%), followed by elves (5%), dwarves (3%), and gnomes (2%), while half-elves and half-orcs make up the remainder of the population (at 1% each).
