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.

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.
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.

Local Challenge #16 - "FIRST SNOW" (hosted by Gurusql and AK_Brickster)
The Challenge: After we have completed GCV and seen many of the residents of Garheim flee to the countryside. Now is time to show how the characters will deal with the first winter snow.
In this contest please build an original creation that will show your character interacting with the first snow of the season and connect this with a category for CCCXI.
The snow could be out the window or even showing kids playing in it. Let your imagination run wild.
Requirements: The MOC should have the following:
- Must be a CCCXI entry, of any category except the custom minifigure ones.
- The theme should be the "First Snow". This would do any MOC showing the first snow built into the category.
- Your LCC character must be in the MOC.
- Must include a story with your MOC.
- Including the Garheim standard is required (can be built into the base).
- You must create a post within the Garheim thread for official entry.
- One entry per member of Garheim.
Deadline: 11:59 PM Pacific Time Zone, December 31th.
Any questions can be asked in this thread or PMed to me (gurusql).
Everyone will get 3 points for entry
There will be winner and honorable mention. Scoring to be determined
AK_Brickster and I will determine the winner.
