An ancient race of sentient tree-beings, the dodona (adjective and singular: dodonan) disappeared from Rao’s Sanctuary thousands of years ago. With their strong ties to nature, it is believed that they died out from a sickness caused by living in the city too long.
The technology they left behind is advanced and beautiful, weaving natural resources and magic together in ways lost to time. The dwarves’ attempts to recreate these techniques with modern materials are not always successful, producing clunky machines where dodonan artefacts are efficient and graceful.
Much of dodonan civilisation now lies in ruins, deep in the woodlands or underneath the city.
