Welcome to Norland: The Highland Realm
The Highland Realm is a great swath of land which is made up of multiple demesnes all led by one of the four High Lords. Life in the Highland Realm is never greatly peaceful as the threat of dark creatures constantly threaten the land. The people of the Highland Realm always seem to stand strong.

Nordish Traditions and Faith
Red Faith - https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/forum/1133-red-faith/
Red Faith is the religion of the Norlandic people and is the majority religion in the Highland Realm. The Red Faith of the Allfather follows His light and with His wrath and justice does he fight against those of the long dark and the evil of the skies. It is our job here in this world to fight back what slips through the cracks of this corrupted world and live on to spread the shining truths of the Red Faith for all to see. The Red Faith has multiple branches of thought and for in depth explanation one can seek the knowledge of a Keeper.

Directions: (1700 -1700)
A man, woman, or child may walk down the winding roads to the northeast of cloud temple. The road that leads east from most human kingdoms. Eventually at the old Curonian Crossroads there will be a fork; the path on the right is the one to take that leads into the Highland Realm. The first town within our borders is that of Darrowmere, a small Canonist town that crests itself next to the river with its friendly populace, with its walls parting in the middle to allow passage further. The old Astorga wood, a large forest in the North West of the Aedellands, sits to your left as you journey down the path. At this point you will reach another fork in the road, the left path leading to the Nordish Capital of Morsgrad and the Village of Vi Stige and the right path leading to the the Southern Aedelland, where the men of Lunsbeck tend, and the Mitteland, where the Waldienians of Eisenwald live. SS Pillars are located on the midsection of the Spire leading up to Morsgrad, the left path down before going to the bridge and another SS Pillar is located in Vi Stige!
