Vassal provinces to the Duchy of Crydee includes the Barony of Carse.
Crydee is perhaps best know as the birth place of Borric conDoin sons Lyam and Arutha and his daugther Carline who were key players in the Riftwar, and as the childhood home of Tomas Megarson and Pug.
During the Riftwar, it was besieged by the Tsurani. Duke Borric and his son Lyam went to Yabon to fight the Tsurani. Control of the keep was passed to Swordmaster Fannon. When he was wounded, control was handed to Prince Arutha. He proved a competent leader. Eventually, the Tsurani left for political reasons.

Crydee was attacked by mercenaries, slavers and pirates acting for the Panathian serpent priest. It was mostly destroyed and most of the population killed or kidnapped including the local garrison. The castle was badly damaged by fire. Carse and Tulan were also hit badly.
