HistoryKel Nord is the northern most Kel along the Sentinel Sea. Though technically not on the Western Coast, the Kel sits at the center of a cluster of islands called the Grey Islands which is at the northern most point of the Sentinal Sea.
Kel Nord is the iron-producing capital of the Kels though it lacks many resources such as timber and food stocks. This has lead to a vast trading network of cargo ships that run up and down the western coast of the Sentinel Sea sending timber, coal and food in exchange for the iron and steel from the grey islands foundaries.
Eventually, needing much greater resources than could be exported to Kel Nord within a timely manner, the nobles of the Kel set up a colony along the eastern shores of the Sentinal Sea to provide them with additional timber and supplies. That colony grew and eventually became the Barony of Northshield.
The ancestral rulers of Kel Nord, the House of Mordu , have been called the 'Bear Kings' since Kel Nord's Founding.
