Ullester is a town located in the Willowdale region of the vast Hwychwood forest of Brythonia. It is positioned along the river banks near the confluence of Tamesys and Kennet.

Ullester is often thought of as two districts.

  • Upptun is the northern half of town, and also physically above the rest, situated on a level bluff overlooking the southern half of town. Most of these buildings are relatively new, and the streets are open and less crowded.
  • Duntun {DOON-tun} is the southern half, where the majority of the town’s buildings can be found. It grows increasingly crowded as available space is claimed by new arrivals. Duntun is built on a gentle slope that runs down to the river.

The Ullester Thynge [Þynge] {thing} is a town council led by Eorl Aragnar {erl a-RAG-nar}. Its members include a patriarch from each noble family – Araganing, Woldemar, Scarnati and Kleinberg – plus the Forwost [guard captain] and Heáh-Gothi [high priest]. Together they help the Eorl make decisions about laws and protection of the town. The Eorl is also advised by the Thyle [Þyle], who also has the duty of determining the truth of public statements.
