Gondunura was the regional Telman capital many years ago. When the Telman Empire began to decline and its influence began to wane, Gondunura succumbed to a savage assault from neighboring Zemuk, which had been dealt with harshly the year before for sponsoring a separate attempt to eject the Telman garrison. The Zemuk coup was quick and extremely bloody, and spelled the end of significant Telman influence in Rytacht.
Unfortunately, the exultant Zemuk Markgraf, Viktin, then ordered the sacking of Gondunura. Crops were ruined, many able-bodied local Gondunurans were slain, and many more perished in famine when the crops failed and winter came. The Gondunurans harbor a deep-seated hatred for Zemukers to this day, and the border between the two is closely watched and guarded.
Gondunura's full name is the Grand and Most Right Principality of Gondunura. It is ruled by a Crown Prince, currently Crown Prince Baldwyn Fullgate. Unfortunately, for all its grand titles the area is still sparsely populated, and is one of the more minor powers in Rytacht.
