Riekland (Clans of Lochlanach)
To the far north, along the Icewind Mountains, past the Dwarfs of Axebiter Pass, there dwells a barbaric people who are best known for the terror and plunder that they have brought to the lands south of them. Lesser known for their fine craftsmanship of iron, stone working, trade, and bards, they have successfully made contact and trading relations with far distant ports but prefer to avoid the major cites. Governed by no one ruler, they nevertheless still work together at times with ancient ties of blood and gifting. Unconquered, they speak their own tongue unless travelling and still worship the Gods of their forefathers.
