The rugged terrain gives way to an occasional pasture where the mysterious Vildoon live, but are rarely seen. Stout mountains rest to the north and a thick forest stretches to the northeast. There is a faint smell of burnt steel and an everpresent sound of hammerstrokes. The people here may be helpful, but they are dutiful of their chores.

Cloaked visitors give their attention to the unnatural fast-flowing, impassable river to the west.

Vilmer rests south of the Weston Mountains. Like the Bolalians, these people are rugged and independent. They are also innately curious about the river, called White Water River. It rages southward and it is to the west of Vilmer.

The river moves so fast nothing can sail on it or swim in it. Attempts have been made to sail it, but boats are quickly swept up in its currents and smashed on rocks. Despite all attempts to cross the river, none have been made successfully. No human can cross it; no flying creature desires to fly over it.

Due to the seemingly magical nature of White Water River, Vilmer is often frequented by magic-users and druids. They attempt to understand the river, what is on the other side, and the magic properties of the raging river.

Vilmeran are also very cognizant of the need to support the Astorians struggle against the lizard people. Vilmeran fighters are especially proficient fighting on horseback. It has a breed of horse, called the Vildoon. These horses with blue manes are hardy, quick steeds, but they depend on a special diet and preparation secret to the Vilmeran.

The general atmosphere of Vilmer is tolerant of all non-evil alignments, so long as the loose set of city rules are followed.

It is known for its border with White Water River, pine trees, ore (iron, bauxite, platinum), coal, siltstone, Vilmeran Steel, archers, woods, horses (called Vildoon), and goats. It grows fruits (apples, pears, apricots, cherries) and vegetables (lettuce, peas, beets, cabbage, and carrots).

Notable Inns/Taverns: The Vil'doom (I), Horseshoe Harry's (T), and Swift Drink (T).
