Since the dawn of this world, the great forces of destruction battled for simply their existence. Great primeval dragons and serpents known as The Linnorn dominated the for northern realms. Scarring the land with their mere passing. Legends say they did battle with the gods for sport. They sought to mimic their creators and nibble at the roots of the world tree, and consume the world. These beasts wielded those ancient forces of destruction to all end. They commanded powers, lightning, fire, ice, sea.

It is from this chaos the Nordheimer had found to survive.

In the far North, past the stone walls and taiga forests of the Chegardian Tsars and Hongali nomads, deep in the barren wastelands and iceworn fjords of the north exist the Nordheimer. A race of tall, pale warriors who wield their steel with mystic reverence. They exist to die, and do glory for themselves and their strange gods. With the forces of destruction constantly nipping at their sides, they do war with themselves, their neighbors, and the wild itself, for they claim that portion of the north as their homeland, it is not even truly theirs.

Every day is a battle, and every night a victory. They hunt, and fish, and raid for their existence. Their great clans are lead by the greatest of their warriors, be they man or woman. For even their hero gods are not invulnerable, they know that weakness must be overcome through any means, and skill is to be revered, no matter the craft. The Nordheimer respect those that seek perfection, even through their own roughened way of life.

They have a strange mixture of ancestor worship, animism, druidism, and reverence for their hero gods, and even those of their nearby neighbors the Chegardians for whom they share a few choice gods.

The Nordheimer are ruled by a strange and almost alien traditions and customs, but ancient royal lines of the most decorated warriors or priests or established families lord over tribes and cities, banded together by warlords or occasionally a high-king. Only crowned by slaying one of the mightiest foes in the realm, a Linnorn.

While it is true the Nordheimer are known to most of their neighbors as savage barbarian raider's who's berserkers rival even orcs and minotaurs in savagery and deadliness, they are also skilled poets, storytellers, explorers, famed sailors, traders, and craftsmen.

Do not doubt the men of the far north, with their seemingly backwards ways and languages. They are a truly ancient people who live as they did since the dawn of time.
