Kaldrstronde, The Frozen Shores
Kaldrstronde is the northernmost country in the world of Jord. Beyond it, there is only the Frostfell; that, and the edge of the great disk of the world. The land is bounded on the East, West, and South by the Blue Star Sea, that sea which is named for the principal navigator’s star and is home to the world’s most lucrative trade routes.
The Mavar, angrily called sea-birds by locals and “The Cold Seafarers” by foreigners, are the disputed rulers of Kaldrstronde. They send forth magistrates and tax collectors from their fortress-capitol, Eyearja, while maintaining their power through force of arms and a trade monopoly. The Blue Star Mercantile Guild is the real power behind the Mavar, with the world’s greatest navy and virtually unlimited resources.
