Viscounty of Verbobonc
The Viscounty of Verbobonc is a near-independent province of the Archclericy of Veluna, ruled in palatine by a powerful viscount. The town of Verbobonc itself is the second largest post on the Velverdyva, bringing much wealth to the local lords. The writ of the viscounty extends some fifteen miles into the Kron Hills to the south, though the current gnome troubles ensure that the viscount holds little true power there. Though relations with the lords of neighboring villages and strongholds within the viscounty are not nearly as tumultuous, Viscount Wilfrick’s inattentiveness during the latter part of this reign has ensured that some local rulers have more power than they ought to have, a problem that the current viscount, Langard, must deal with on a daily basis.
You can do the following things in Verbobonc:
Identify basic magic items for 500 gp per item. This is a budget identification service which may not reveal everything about an item (eg, command-words, or super-special abilities). It’s very good at saying that something is a Sword +1, or a Chain Mail +3.
Get most clerical and magic-user spells cast, for a fee. RaiseDead starts at 5,500 gp in cost, provided the corpse only died within 9 days. A cure disease costs 1,000 gp.
Buy any item listed in the PHB at list-price.
Sell items and treasure which you may not have been able to sell in Hommlet. You could even get a better price.
Recruit hirelings and henchpersons.
