Gods of the North
Far to the north, cold winds blow all year round and hard men stalk great beasts through the dark bowers of endless evergreen woods. This land was never fully tamed by the empire and only in the borderlands are there any signs of cities or the comforting familiarity of imperial culture. Beyond the borderlands lies harsh mountains and boundless forests. Within these lands roam mighty beings of elemental power and unthinkable abominations that defy description. Among these live the Geatish peoples of the north. Never having been subjugated by the old empire, their ancient culture remains untainted and intact. Foreigners will find little comfort among the windblown savages and the deep north unless they can prove their worth against the worst that the dark hordes can bring. The Geats still pay homage to the gods of their ancestors almost exclusively.
