Nyrheimur

“The men of Nyrheimur have no king, only the Law”

Currently, the only form of government in Nyrheimur is the local democratic assembly, the Thing. The president of a Thing is called a logsogumaghur (“lawspeaker”), elected by the local godhar (priests). A logsogumadhur is required to recite the entire law from memory, one third at each yearly assembly. There is much talk of creating a national assembly for the whole island, an Althing, but the earliest that would likely be enacted is 930 N.Y.

There was an early Gwerryn settlement on Nyrheimur called the Papar, relatives of the Milesians who once sailed from Nonorra to attempt to wrest The Gray Isle from the Alfar. These Papar were clergy of the Hierarchy, seeking to extend the Hierarch’s sway beyond even the Promethean Ocean. The Papar were enslaved or slain by the arriving Northern settlers to the island.
