The Northern Reach
The Northern Reach is the name used by the Dragon Empire to refer to the lands north of the empire. It is a dangerous, but ruggedly beautiful land.
Many of the same races are present as in the empire.
Humans are predominant. There are several groups of nomads and barbarians. One group of humans, the Northmen have very recently begun to migrate from the Northern Reach into the empire. They have brought their Aesir pantheon of gods with them.
Giants are more common in the far north than in the empire.
The Northern Reach is full of its own monsters and has its own gods and heroes and myths. The Aesir worshiped by the Northmen are just one of many pantheons. The northern gods are generally not represented in the High Priestess‘s Cathedral because there has been little interaction yet. The Northmen who have begun to migrate into the empire brought their gods, but they haven’t yet been absorbed. It’s just a matter of time until they are, most likely.
