The Norsemen Of Holmstrom


Recommended Posts

History:

Born into the harsh Winters of the North, the Norsemen came to ground their roots into the hard, frozen soil. This fearsome group was founded by Ayre Salex, forefather of the Three. Each of his sons took up his own surname. The eldest was named Skagyr Ulfhaedyn. The middle was called Thenric Norsem. The youngest of the three, was named Eldred Foy. Each of the boys were as wild and fierce as the last, and unmatched in their own separate skills of warfare, politics, and justice, respectively. The Norsemen were all home in a motte and bailey called New Heimdall, a bastion against the Undead and other troublesome wildlings wandering about. They were all steadfast against minor skirmishes with the forsaken souls of the Undead. These fights left the scales tipped with the Undeads favour. Norsemen fell before the Undead, being brought to their knees in despair before falling beneath their minions. Ayre Salex in dire need, made haste with a detatchment of guards to Al’khazar, to plead for the King Enor’s protection. Enor looked down and sneered at his furs and oiled black ringmail. Enor dismissed him with a flick of the wrist. Salex, outraged at the Kings brusque dismissal , vowed that he would have Enor’s head, in front of all the court. Salex was shortly executed after that, his head sent back to his remaining sons. The Salex line was too busy fending off the Undead Legions when word reached them, their village on the verge of collapsing. Skagyr Ulfhaedyn, the firstborn son made the call to abandon New Heimdall. The two younger brothers grudgingly abided, and all three went their separate ways. The bulk of the Norsemen accompanied Skagyr with his longboats as they traveled in pursuit of new lands, while Foy and Norsem headed south, to make (and take part in) the Phoenix Revolution.

Ydain, son of Skagyr, traveled into Asulon with his young son, Aedric. They settled on the southern tip of Hanseti, and begin the Old Way of life once more. Looting, pillaging, and raiding small fishing villages till their granaries were empty. They continued this way of life, not bothering not meddle with the happenings of the Empire and other nation, until word reached their ears of the death of one of their distant relatives, Norsem. Seeing their chance, and abandoning the Old Way, they traveled to the Orenian Empire, to seize Norsem's lands, keeps, and titles.

The Norsemen

-----------------------

“Bound by Blood, Bound by Honour, Bound by Family, ‘Till Death”

The Norsemen are generally made up of northern stalk, with the rarity of a dwarf, and even a southeron in their midst. Their general morals are to bring harm to any dark elf they may see, if their leader permits it.

Norsemen are fierce in nature, grown in the harsh environments of the north/Hansetian mountain colds. They oft wear oiled ringmail, with bits of plate here and there.

The Norsemen are currently sworn under the Knightly Order of the White Rose. In turn, they serve the Holy Oren Empire and defend their borders. The Ulfhaedyns are not nobility, but they do hold lands. As well as the Norsemen are not bannermen, and have no place among the Emperors vast and mighty banner armies.
