Celpalar is self sufficient in agriculture, building materials, and basic raw materials. Their blacksmiths, weavers, and other artisans are highly technically proficient; turning out sturdy, high-quality goods but not much of artistic or aesthetic value. The diversity of flora and fauna harvested and transplanted from the rainforests of Golaren yields ingredients for a strong alchemical/pharmecutical industry. Main exports are food products,exotic fauna, and high quality metalwork and fabrics.
