D&D 3.0: Tales from Mystara
Population: 21.000 (Rural: 20.000)
Capitol: Wangzhao Ha (Pop: 1.000)
A small but historically important province, Shou was one of the first Cypri nations in Ochalea. The Shou princes where defeated early on by the kings of Wang, who absorbed the province into their kingdom. It is currently much reduced in status and power, as it has few natural resources – most of the population survives by combining fishing and subsistence agriculture.
The population of Shou is mostly humans, with a few ``Sea Spirit Folk’’ (Water Genasi) villages and a limited Lupin population in the capitol town, Wangzhao Ha. This region is not very dangerous, and is generally considered quite dull by foreigners – and the locals like it this way. Some evil shapechangers do, however, infest the upper reaches of Shou, though they are usually content with the abduction of livestock or the occasional human straggler.
