Ouwestad is the capital and largest city of Tielsland freehold.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
The "Long Hand of Ouwestad" is a term used throughout Borost to describe Ouwestad's interference in what they consider to be local affairs.
History[edit | edit source]
Ouwestad, unlike any of the other Dwaerkar capitals, is unique in the fact that it was not established over an existing elven city.
Geography[edit | edit source]
Ouwestad is located atop the hills adjacent to the southeastern reaches of the Barends, and enjoys a temperate-mountainous climate perfectly suited to the Dwaer constitution. There is plentiful snow in the winter, and the summers are warm and enjoyable.
Demographics[edit | edit source]
Ouwestad is almost entirely populated by Dwaerkar.
