History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Prior to the Fifth Frontier War the IISS established a minor trading station at Zila to encourage commerce with the neighboring Vargr.

The wine of Zila has an excellent reputation; recent vintages have been critically acclaimed throughout the Marches. Four wineries dominate the market: Fireau et Fille, Signal, Delatest, and Tukera Wines.

In addition to Zila Startown, other major settlements on Zila include Suugadus, Dirniga, and Irkigaki.
