Estagund was, alongside Durpar and Var the Golden, a part of the Shining Lands. As with all the Shining Lands, it was largely centered around trading.[1]


Estagund was conquered by Reinhar I and his arkaiuns in 551 DR, but quickly regained their independence when Reinhar was slain in Halruaa shortly thereafter by the archmage Mycontil.[2]

In 1023 DR Estagund invaded Dambrath. Not only did they fail to conquer the their neighbor, but the vengeful crinti attacked Estagund in retaliation, slaying most of the working age men throughout the country. Famine soon struck all of Estagund. Durpar jumped on the opportunity to pacify their violent neighbors and sent an emissary to negotiate terms with the king and nobles of Estagund. After days of negotiating, Durpar purchased the country of Estagund for 24 gems. In return, they offered their full protection and showed taught them the way of Durpari life. A century later, Estagund was fully enveloped into the Shining Lands.[3]

Shou Lung was working intrigues to establish an enclave—a Shou Town—in Chavyondat in Estagund in the mid-1370s DR.[4]
