Norðurlendir Campaign Setting

Norðurlendir Campaign Setting

In the north, the Norður build a vast seafaring society fueled by cunning and cruelty, reaving and pillaging. Violence is the currency of the north, but when the longships ferry the berserkers toward new conquests some stay behind to do the hard work of building something new, of which they know only tales; a civilization.

So the south, The Imperium Romanum dies from a thousand cuts. The greatness of the empire is spent, though its army and riches remain. Decline weighs the minds of the mighty while even the low whisper foreboding; the dreams of today seem but pale reflection of glories past. Generals in the field plot to overthrow the emperor, while scholars look to the north and east and fear a return to the long dark when man was but a brutal animal.

The story then takes places in two worlds, one young and exhilarating, peopled with men and women drunk on adventure and in ascent; the other languishing, corrupt, and slowly surrendering the greatest civilization in history to the darkness. It explores, then, the moment when an epoch of wisdom, law and order cedes primacy to a new age, one part heroic and one part horrific.
