The current socio-political climate on Roh is not good. Economically the island is in turmoil as recent trade sanctions made by King Aren have distanced some Lords and negatively effected the inflow of gold. In the north of the island pro-rebellion movements have become popular, with several rebel groups in operation, most notably The Black Shadows.
Interestingly, the Southern and Western parts of the island remain loyal despite the economic downturn, and in fact there is a lot of pro-royal sentiment. Talk of civil war has become popular.
