Ardeal is a county in central Ustalav. Traditionally considered the heart of the nation, it contains the former capital city of Ardis which sits on the banks of the Vhatsuntide River. Its historical significance is bolstered by the fact that it was the birthplace of Soividia Ustav, founder of Ustalav. Once the heart of Ustalavic culture, home to artists, poets, craftsmen, and the social elite, this changed when the capital moved to Caliphas. The county lost its status as the cultural center of the nation and went into decline. Now Ardeal is home to fading memories of happier times. The once-prosperous manors that line the banks of the Vhatsuntide are now in ruins, and the verdant farmlands have fallen to nature's harsh influence.[1] Ardeal is ruled by a noble as decaying and passed her prime as the county itself, the vicious Countess Solismina Venacdahlia[2]
