The Heldann Freeholds
This forested region, formerly known as the Heldann Freeholds, is located just to the north of the Ethengar Khanates. The land is inhabited by the Heldann, a fair-haired, light-skinned folk, who fish, farm, and hunt. The Heldann traditionally acknowledge no ruler higher than the individual household leader, but this has changed in the last generation. About 50 years ago, an army of elite clerics, who took as their name the Heldannic Knights, imposed their rule over the land. The Heldannic Knights are Hattians from the Empire of Thyatis, devoted to the warlike Immortal, Vanya.
