Some settlements in Leithawyn act as self-governing vassals or are otherwise left to their own devices, or are otherwise allies that live in the wilderness. Arranged roughly from west to east.

Sepoko, their chieftain and priest-king. [cleric]
Garuum, an exile from M'botuu now living as a recluse in the Greenbelt.
: A village of bog striders, stick-insect like humanoids, or in Aquan, Ses'h. Peaceful hunter-gatherers once preyed upon with the boggards, now in an uneasy truce. Roughly 20 of them remain in Tok-Nikrat.

: A reclusive druid of Erastil has set up a cabin on the site of an old hunting lodge and a sacred statue to the god, where he works as a bowyer and fletcher. A few others have joined him, forming an impromptu hamlet.
: Originally led by a violent lizard-king brainwashed by a will-o'-wisp, the tribe is now allied with Leithawyn, who do their best to keep loggers and other meddlers from bothering the more slow-to-react Iruxi.
