A Kingdom Steeped in History and Tradition
Ding Dong Dell is a kingdom situated in the northern part of the Summerlands. Grimalkin, mousekind, and humans have coexisted there for centuries. It has the longest history of any of the world’s nations, thanks in no small part to the unwavering protection of its kingmaker, the noble Oakenhart.
The cats and mice of Ding Dong Dell have a long history of animosity. Indeed, according to one account, there was once a war between them that lasted several centuries. Some even claim that the Mausingers, a famous mouse clan, were driven into the sewers while their grimalkin oppressors lived peaceful lives above the ground. The local humans try to avoid becoming involved in this conflict, and give politics a wide berth.
The Tildrums had ruled over Ding Dong Dell for generations until the premature death of King Leonhard put his young son Evan on the throne. The mice saw an opportunity, staged a coup, and drove the boy king out of the country. Tensions in the kingdom have run high ever since. Grimalkin are not allowed to leave, and only those who have been granted special permission may now visit.
