GARHEIM HAS MOVED! Check out the new thread here: http://merlins-beard.com/thread/7/garhe ... ion-thread
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------FACTION INFOIn the north stand the snow-covered mountain the Garhims call home. It is a desolate and barren world, but to the hard-working and honorable Garhims an easy life is no life at all, and with stone for their castles and fish for their mouths, the land provides everything they need.
Creations in this faction should have an "old Nordic" feel to them. Stone is plentiful, but wood is scarce and valuable, especially in the far-northern reaches of the region. Due to their difficult terrain, this faction values speed and maneuverability and has a strong focus on light infantry.
REGIONAL MAPCredit - Shmails, Wobnam, MitahFull map of Roawia can be found HERELEADERSHIPIn the Province of Garheim, the independent nature of the people make uniting them a difficult task. For the last 20 years, this duty has fallen to Jhirian Eindrik, who leads by virtue of his reputation as a skilled hunter and warrior. Honor and respect is highly prized in the northern lands, and Jhirian has earned it from his kinsman by virtue of his efforts in defending the homelands from rouge outlaws and skirmishes with the other factions of the land.
Feeling no need to bow to any other man, his allegiance to the King would not exist, were he not bound by the ties of loyalty that his people live by. His sword, and that of his fellow Garhims, belong to the King as long as the Code of Honor between them remains intact.
