[nbos] [FM8] Joerdhgardh Map of Week #162 Released
"Mark Oliva"
Sun Jul 13th, 2014
With the 162nd Map of the Week, we take a look at the triple principality of
Karelenland. The country is unique, not so much as a land ruled by a troika
but moreso as the last vestige of light elves in the Dimension of the Living
upon the joerdh. In olden times Karelenland was a part of the princedom of
the Ganndar elves, who were ruled by the great spellcaster, Prince Ganndálf,
and his sister-wife, the celestial queen Ilmatra. They ascended long ago to
their home in the stars, and the Ganndar retreated from most of their lands.
They remain only in the northwestern corner of the joerdh. in Karelenland,
across the waters from Northland, the domain of the dark elven Queen Luohi.

The principality is ruled by the three sons of Ganndálf and Ilmatra, the
princes Lemminkaeinen, an elven wizard-warrior; Vaeinaemoeinen, an elven
skáld, and Ilmarinen, a dwarven master smith who is an artisan. The tale of
how the elf Voelundr became the dwarf Ilmarinen is told in the free
Joerdgardh campaign setting books.

It is extremely difficult for outsiders to reach Karelenland, partly because
of its remote location, but above all because of the protective measures its
rulers have taken to keep outsiders out. However, humans who do succeed in
entering Karelenland have a chance to gain the best training available for
spellcasters, sword swingers and smiths in the schools of the three princes.
Karelenland has a mixed population of light elves, half-elves and humans.
It is the land where the first half-elves were born and also the land where
the great majority of the joerdh's half-elves still live.
