-The first major city built on Ageron, Vesuna first began as a central hub for merchants and traders, which later grew to support a tremendous agricultural community after the discovery of the Orb of Clear Skies by the third king of Ageron. Since then, in addition to running the affairs of the kingdom, it has also been the king’s duty to oversee the acquisition and neutralization of artifacts of potentially dangerous nature, which has generally been kept secret from the general public. After the great mental plague and the exile of the psions, the city’s great walls were erected, as a means of defense against outside threats, and a safeguard for preventing similar internal catastrophes from spreading to the rest of the world. It was also then that Fingoli Arnin, the eighth king of Ageron, had the Gondone Shackle come into his possession. Since then, it has been worn by the current king at all times. After the formation of Uzumi, Vesuna began regularly allocating large shipments of food to the new city, as they had little fertile farmland of their own.+The first major city built on Ageron, Vesuna first began as a central hub for merchants and traders, which later grew to support a tremendous agricultural community after the discovery of the Orb of Clear Skies by the third king of Ageron.

After the great mental plague and the exile of the psions, the city’s great walls were mysteriously erected, as a means of defense against outside threats, and a safeguard for preventing similar internal catastrophes from spreading to the rest of the world. It was also then that Fingoli Arnin, the eighth king of Ageron, came into the posession of the Gondone Shackle. Since then, it has been worn by the current king at all times. After the formation of Uzumi, Vesuna began regularly allocating large shipments of food to the new city, as they had little fertile farmland of their own.

-In addition to the shipments of food to [[settings:ageron:uzumi|Uzumi]], Vesuna regularly trades crops with [[settings:ageron:firehammer_hold|Firehammer Hold]] in exchange for metals (primarily iron), gemstones, machinery, alcohol, and other Dwarven goods. Due to its central location on the continent, it has becoma a sort of cultural melting pot of all the nearby cities, though the city's leaders are unusualy wary of [[settings:ageron:northface|Northface]]. +In addition to the shipments of food to [[settings:ageron:uzumi|Uzumi]], Vesuna regularly trades crops with [[settings:ageron:firehammer_hold|Firehammer Hold]] in exchange for metals (primarily iron), gemstones, machinery, alcohol, and other Dwarven goods.

-Hafeld is the agrarian district of the city, and is the source of all farming for which the city is known for. Hafeld is the outermost district of the city, completely surrounding the smaller urban district of Dadun. Only those who actively contribute to Vesuna’s agrarian district by either farming or ranching are permitted to live within Hafeld. Despite its size, only about 25 percent of Vesuna’s citizens live in Hafeld, with the majority of the land being used for farming. Hafeld is divided into four quadrants, in which different crops are sewn each year. Currently, the northern quadrant is comprised of vegetables, the southern quadrant fruits, the eastern quadrant grains, and the western quadrant herbs and teas. Each year, the placement of the crops rotate clockwise, in order to keep the soil fertile. Additionally, dividing each quadrant of the district are various orchards of apples, pears, peaches, lemons, oranges, etc. While there is no designated livestock zone, all residents of Hafeld are required to keep various livestock on their property for either consumption or raw materials (wool, leather, feathers, etc.) The agricultural business here is partially government run, with the farmers being granted sizable stipends each year in exchange for certain percentages of their crops being sent to Uzumi and Firehammer Hold or placed into the storehouses.+Hafeld is the agrarian district of the city, and is the source of all farming for which the city is known for.
