History of the Barony
The Barony of North Shield was founded by the House of Fenryk in the city of North Haven. North Haven was founded as a town in 527 KR and evolved to the first march of the Barony, (XXX), by 560 KR . With the addition of a second march twenty years later, the pair of marches became the Barony of North Shield by the year 582 KR . Most of the settlements were clustered around the silver river along the northern edge of the Blackwood Forest , east of the Silverwood Forest. It was the human settlements that stood to protect the kingdom's northern border against anything that might invade from the Northlands.
Soon after the lands were conirmed as a barony in a ceremony officiated by the King of Kel Arn, Baron XXX of the House of Fenryk wanted to see what else he had to work with within the forest within which he had carved a home. To this end he hired several scouts and sent them throughout the area to explore and map what they discovered.
