Well, my laptop takes its sweet time to load, so I always have some time to kill. That is most easily done by reading the map descriptions... in the most dramatic british accent possible

Pretty sure I know the Paritan and Labyrinth ones by heart, they take forever to load on my laptop.

a little fictional background.

when a baron has 3 sons it is only natural that 1 will heir his lands. 1 will join the religious order and take a high position.
the last son with nothing to lose will be sent forth with an army, settling in new lands. Creating new taxes for the great king greger who sits on his throne of steel.

When a former king saw that the resources of the fjords depleted, he launched a desperate attack against the Chaladon order, who he blamed for not helping them in their desperate situation. The attack failed and many sons were lost. The Baronies began to starve and the pressure of the northern raiders kept the borders at war. It was then that the King died, and it was then Greger the Great took the throne and drove the northern barbarians back.
Being a great leader King Greger quickly established new trade routes to the south and to the west towards Anvala.
The southern lands proved trade with the mercantile guild, but the greedy Anvalans kept their riches to themselves. pushing the baronies to the west King Greger promised every noble man the lands they could take. Anvala would know the might of the Baronies.

Random question that recently popped up in my head:

What's the corresponding adjective for the Fjord Baronies?

A person from the Yesha Empire can be called a Yeshan, we obviously have Anglean Raiders and a chicken from the Arashi League is most certainly an Arashi chicken. But what about the Baronies?
I believe the adjective describing a Baron is "baronial", so would you refer to people from the Baronies as Baronials? Or maybe Fjordlanders?

honestly the fjord baronies are one of the most complex and mysterious factions as of right now, they just haven't been fleshed out as much as other factions (in a public document anyway) and feudal systems are very dense social structures. so we really wont know for sure until we are given more information.

but if i had to hazard a guess, it would depend on how closely you are looking at it. someone within the society would most likely identify with the particular barony they live in. while, people from other societies would probably identify everyone from there collectively. and i think something along the lines of fjordlanders is close to what would be used. as the kingdom is always referred to in reference to the fjords (at least in everything i have read).

Good point, as far as we know the Baronies are very heterogenous. I could imagine that which blood lines you are part of plays a very big role for the nobles, and the commoners identify with the noble family they swore fealty to.

It's obvious, since people from the Nether Lands in our society are called the Dutch then people from the Fjord Lands would be called the Butch.

There solved it, they're all called Butch.

Fjordlanders is the term I've heard more often. Don't think they've ever said anything else.

I like it! Beautiful combination of medieval armor and 19th century military uniforms.
