GARHEIM HAS MOVED!

Check out the new thread here: http://merlins-beard.com/thread/7/garhe ... ion-thread
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


FACTION INFO

In 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.

LEADERSHIP

In 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.

Image

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.


FACTION TRAITS/INFO

I still like 'Garhimi' better - but maybe the Earls of the Ulenborg will use a slightly different dialect ;-)

As I understand, next challenge will probably be a faction contest. I do not expect the FO and FL to know all exact details at this very moment off course, but maybe they already know when it will be announced?

AK_Brickster refering to your post in the LCC - Discussion Thread
AK_Brickster wrote:Name of Capital City (location already shown)
Name/Location of 3 additional major cities (encampments/hideouts for Outlaws)
Name/Location of 5-8 major landmarks/geographical features.

gurusql wrote:Kroth Stonegrinder is an experienced warrior and currently the Captain of the Guard for the town of Havenhill. He does not carry the title of Sir since at present he does not own any land. The town of Havenhill is situated along a river that is near the center of Garheim.


From my CIC I had envisioned Havenhill to be a town that is along the river that is to the left of the one with the capital on it, about half way up the river, just at the tree line. The ruler of the town is Lord Aldolphus and my character (Kroth Stonegrinder) is Captain of the Guard.
I would encourage others of our fine faction to summarize the location names and where you thought they were on the map that you already included in your CIC. :D

The Ugleborg is located near the west coast, at the border with Lenfald, near the Lenfald stronghold Falkerborg.
Ugleheim and Falkerby, which were build near the Ugleborg and the Falkerborg, are quite small villages and will not necessarily be shown on all maps.

Added link to map on Flickr to announcements section. Feel free to discuss the map development over there. I've tagged some possible city locations in locations that seem geographically reasonable, but we can discuss them amongst ourselves over there.

Rothburg is a town of moderate size that belongs to Angus the Bold. It was granted to him by the King for his good deeds. (Read Angus' story for more info.) It is also his hometown. It is located on the very east side of Garheim very close to the shore. The town itself is surrounded by a small tundra which is good for sheep and small livestock. As for landmarks, there are just a few gysers to the north. Rothburg, itself, has a small stone wall and a keep in the center of the town. Also, it has a few problems with rebel Vikings.

Faction "Leaderboard" has been added to the last post. Wob, if you want to be in charge of scoring, that's fine. Otherwise I can do it. I'll prob keep score either way, but it might be easier to find if we can put it in your first post instead of tacking it to an already very long first post.
Thanks guys. Liking the input we're getting on the map. One of these evenings I'll do some serious cartography work on it 8)

We can put scoring in my post, sure. I think we should include usernames as well as character names though, I have no idea who most of those people are ;)

That's fine. It just looked redundant since I have the roster in my main post as well. If you put the leaderboard in your post, I think adding the usernames would be good. I played around with putting it in an excel sheet so that you can easily add the points and re-rank them and then just copy/paste into your post. Just an idea. :)
