  • The “nation” of the Gjukingar is listed as “Niflungar.” The Niflungar are a people of the huldrufolk, roughly equivalent to standard Pathfinder svirfneblin.
  • The Helsingar control the narrow strait known as the Oresund
  • The Rys are an offshoot of the Sviar who left Svialand under a chief named Rys and settled the lands of the East along the Vylga river.
  • The Skilfingar are essentially the tribe to which the huldrufolk (equivalent to standard Pathfinder gnomes) belong.
  • The Skjoldungar are the ancient rulers of Sjaelland
  • The Ynglingar tribe boast a dynasty of jarls that claim descent from Yngvi (Freyur), and wear boar-crested helms in token of this. Long ago, the Vanic Ynglingar made war on the Aesir-worshiping Gautar tribes, and that enmity still remains.
