Dhaghestahn is a country far to the north of the Half-Continent in the Altgird. People or objects from here are referred to as Dhaghi.


Tandems were imported from Dhaghestahn and the Turkmantine Empire before being made locally. Fine carpets are a notable export, and are found in the Arborlustra,[1] Rossamünd Bookchild's set at Cloche Arde,[2] and Atticus Wells' apartments. Imitation Dhaghi carpet was used to furnish the offices of Messrs. Gabritas & Thring.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Dhaghestahn appears on a map drawn by D. M. Cornish in September 2009 that gives an outline of the Harthe Alle. He also revealed that it is "basically Persian in source".[4]
