Eldrinpar, also known as the Doegan Capital, was the capital city of the realm of Doegan, one of the Five Kingdoms of the Utter East in southeast Faerûn.[2][1][3][note 1]


The land around the Doegan Capital was open and clear, with pleasant green fields and palm trees, but harsh times saw it become dry and rocky, or as rippled brown earth like dried mud with patches of broken, rougher land. Marshes lay in the northwest.[2]

A section of the Doegan Capital.

In the lands around the capital, there were farms with rows of green plants and a canal that led into the city to supply its wells and fountain, which stood beside a park. Here, the houses were square and plastered; plainer houses had flat roofs reached by stairs for storage of goods, but grander houses typically had red-tiled roofs or golden domes, and blue awnings offered shelter from the sun.[2]

A rounded, blue- or brown-domed keep stood on the outskirts, with its doors flanked by crouching beasts. Northwest of the city was a graveyard, with headstones of greenish stone and crypts. Beside it, in the north, was an array of six statues.[2]

The history of the Doegan Capital was often that of Doegan itself. During the time of the Bloodforge Wars (648657 DR),[4][note 2] invaders led by Rathgar the Raider overran Doegan and laid siege to the capital. Rathgar plundered the realm of its bounty and finally seized for the crown itself. After some months, the Howl of Vengeance conflict—waged by Aelric the Avenger in an attempt to restore the former monarchy—saw fighting in the fields, streets, and graveyard of the Doegan Capital itself, as Aelric's undead bloodforged forces sought to oust Rathgar from his keep.[5]

Howl of Vengeance Intro a

A wartorn and devastated Doegan.

The Doegan Capital suffered at least three more battles during the Bloodforge Wars, as the commander of the Legendary Campaign, which sought to unify the wartorn Utter East through conquest, came to Doegan to depose the derelict Patric Fulgirth and later the untrustworthy usurper Gim Blacktongue. Even the competent and steady Hariah Highkin, who had made the Doegan Capital a model of a prosperous city, was overthrown.[6]



  1. This article assumes that the "Doegan Capital" appearing in Blood & Magic is the Eldrinparr mentioned in Realms of Mystery: "Darkly, Through a Glass of Ale" and the Eldrinpar appearing in Conspiracy.
  2. The events of Blood & Magic are only dated to "before the Time of Troubles" (1358 DR) in game. It is assumed these are a part of the Bloodforge Wars described in Faces of Deception and dated in The Grand History of the Realms.
