Dijon is the capital of The Principality of Dijon, which the city is named after. Dijon is a massive Saradominist fortress in which a city is located. To be accessed, completion of the quest Way Down South is required.


Dijon started as a castle with a small village around it owned by Flamtaerists in Bern. In the Second Age, a Saradominist expedition consisting of a small fleet carrying an army of centaurs and humans, and a few civilians was sent South. 2 ships were lost on the way. The 4 ships that made it landed in the Southern Lands a year after they left Asgarnia. They besieged the castle that would become Dijon and they built a large city surrounded by massive walls. The city is heavily fortified and defended.

In the late-Second Age, Saradominist forces back in the main continent took Mort'ton, and when this news reached nearby Bern a few months later, a counter-offensive was sent from Bern to Dijon. Most of Bern's Wyrms were killed, so their forces were weak. However, they were still strong enough to hold against Dijon's defenses. Neither side could gain an advantage, and a stalemate was met.

In the Fourth Age, Dijon's leaders saw it necessary to expand their land, so they built the village of Viculus on a fertile area. It was invaded by Bern several times, which is why it never grew much and stayed a small town throughout its history.

To this day Dijon remains a mighty fortress, and it is still conquering nearby areas.


Dijon is a coastal city, with a small port and 3 massive stone walls surrounding it. The only entrance is by sea or by a large gate in the southern wall.
