Heralds of the Crescent Moon
The Northmen are one of the Barbarian tribes that live on the outskirts of the Four Kingdoms. They are Human, but their rugged lifestyle makes them easily distinguishable from other humans. They are tall and lean with a fair complexion. They are a simple hunter/gatherer type society and have crude shamanistic beliefs. They are wary of true magic, and can be startled by it.
The Northmen clan lives on the Elven border, and they have good trade relations with the Elves. Far better than the Four Kingdoms themselves. They produce many trinkets made of jade and obsidian that are desired by the elves.
While plain and simple folk, the Northmen are fierce warriors when provoked and wield fearsome bastard swords in battle capable of cleaving a man in twain. It is rumored that some Northmen participated in the Heretical Revolt of 22 PW, but their Chieftan denies it.
