My Dran is more or less average for an Elyntian Duchy. But as I mentioned before, my actual population numbers are a lot larger than what's mentioned in ITL, as needed to support what's found in the cities, the standing armies, and the number of armed men roaming around killing each other in all the adventures and random encounters that go on as seen in play. The royal province is a very large city.

Yes.
What do you mean?

Yes, which explains why the dedicated and older wizards tend to be the ones with the higher IQs.
