Great Fiefs of the Wilderlands
The Restless North
The northern coastal provinces (barely coastal in th case of the Dwarven subkingdom of Thunderhold) have some of the most tenuous relationships to the Invincible Overlord. In the case of Thunderhold, the dwarven king pays homage to the Overlord, but promotes trade with his most dedicated enemies - both Gwarenne and the City State of the World Emperor. Gwarenne is notoriously independent, dominating trade with Valon and the Elphand Lands, Valley of the Ancients and controlling the most direct sea route to the City State of the World Emperor, giving it economic clout to resist the Invincible Overlord. Vinnior is a narrow windswept coastal plain on the backside of the Majestic Mountains, it's inhabitants are considered to be the most rustic and boorish of all the City State's provinces.
Duchy of Gwarenne - ruled by the illustrious Sana family, who where among the original conquerors and colonists from the City State of the World Emperor over 1000 years ago. This fief is ruled more as a rival to the City State of the Invincible Overlord, rather than as an inferior. It's boundaries start at the confluence of the central tributary of the Stillring in hex 2511, it follows the Stillring to it's mouth in hex 3110, then turns north and follows the coast around the Wormshead peninsula to hex 2904, then due south to the mountains east of Demon Tongue, turning generally south west along the crests of the hills and mountains to hexes 2607 and 2608, south southwest back to the confluence of the central tributary of the Stillring in hex 2511. It also includes Brezal Isle.
