The Barony of Nordmare (NORD-mare) is located within the Dyrewood in the Southlands, south of the March Sea. The Barony is one of the few coastal baronies of the south with the Barony of Ashwood being the other. The barony lies on the eastern corner of the region and is bordered to the west by the burned ruins of South Hold

History

Name:

The Barony gets its name from the old Arness dialect. The name, Nord-Mare is comprised of two words; nord which means north or northern and Mare which means water. This is a possible connection to the freshwater lake that lies within its forest as a northern source of water. 

The Barony is settled mostly within the borders of the Dyrewood forest. and sets south of the March Sea. Governed by the House of Grellen for centuries, the Barony was one of the first areas explored after the formation of the Kels. 

Dates

  • 880 KR: The Barony of Nordmare within the forest known as Dyrewood has definitely had it's share of bad times. The barony was originally known for its production of rich and colorful fabric that was quickly consumed by the city of Kel Arn and the other Kels. The name of the forest, Dyrewood, was originally known as 'Dyer's Wood' in that it was a forest known to support many villages and towns who produced cloth dye. 
  • 1500 KR: The House of Grellen  once held the Keep at the center of the Barony but lost it some years before the acension of the Sun King, Tarach Trejan to an infestation of undead. They've been unable to reclaim it despite several attempts.
  • As the keep began to fall into disrepair the land surrounding it also began to darken giving into the new nickname of the keep and the barony as "Nightmare" rather than "Nordmare".

Marches

Most of the Marches of the Barony lie within the Dyrewood Forest, a dark and forboding place that is thick with Black Pine, tall hills and deep valleys. The March of Norren, the most northern of the marches, borders the March Sea and is the home of the Baronial Seat. Additionally, the March of Rook's Rest lies further north but it exists upon the island of Rook's Rest just off of the coast.
