Northmenn

Northmenn

The Northmenn (singular “Northmadhur”) are a very hardy human culture, dwelling in inhospitable mountains and fjords. Farming is poor, so many Northmenn take to the sea as vikings, both raiding and trading. The Northmenn are subject to a single ruler, who bears the title of the “Einkonungur” – “The One King.” Most Northmenn secretly believe that it is the destiny of their people to conquer all the North and subject all to the rule of the Einkonungur. Most Northmenn are fanatically loyal to the monarchy of Noregur.
