A huge realm, Drachenward remains mostly unpopulated. No mountains protect the land from the north winds, and glaciers cover many coastal provinces.

[top]Life and Society

Drachenward no longer has any cities. The provinces of Drauch, Buchen, Jarstoldt, and Kearn could probably support small cities, but such civilizations have proven impractical in the past. People instead spread themselves out, in large communities or shared farmsteads, to make hunting and foraging for food in the wintertime easier. Drachenward's people reckon themselves among the survivors of the northland and are fiercely loyal to their leaders and homeland.

[top]The Land

Drachenward encompasses the northern and eastern reaches of the Drachenaur Mountains. The only province that gains any real protection from the northern weather is Drauch, and that area has, in the past, been targeted for special attention by the skirmishers of Grabentod and the manipulations of The Hag. The great pine forests of the interior remain snowcovered throughout the year, and the Klessberg keeps any hopes of fishing or agriculture far from the minds of the Drachenward's people.


The large realm is governed by a petty noble whose determination to see Drachenward recover has transferred the temple holdings of the realm, Drachenhauchen, to his cousin, Gelda Fresmund. The Drachenward has an emotional ally in Danigau, but the realm is unable to provide much aid. The Soldat, before becoming ruler of Drachenward, impressed the Count of Danigau and his wife while visiting the Western Reaches, and they became friends. Unfortunately Danigau has it's own problems; sending ships or aid to Drachenward's would prove problematic at best. Still, if Grabentod would ever decide to attack the Soldat's provinces, Danigau might supply a second front against the pirate kingdom.

While Grabentod has never officially declared war on Drachenward, they have been at each others’ throats since the Hag began her rule in Kordan. The gnolls of the Fells hate and fear Drachenward’s armies, scant as they are. Mor Drachen has no trust in the Jarl of Hjorig.

[top]Important Figures

[top]Plots and Rumours

The dragon rampant emblem on its nobles’ coat-of-arms didn’t find its way there by accident: four of Cerilia’s very rare dragons are believed to make their homes in the Drachenaur Mountains or, perhaps, in the Klessberg. Drachenward may be home to the only dragon known to be able to cast realm spells as well.
An all-out attack on Drachenward-even a minor skirmish in the wrong place-could awaken one of these sleeping monsters. Everyone on Cerilia has heard tales of the damage an enraged dragon can wreak on an army, regardless of magical protection or mortal power.
