Welcome to Mitgardia

If you are new and want to join the fun here, you just think of a character/sigfig for yourself and start building. For a signup example you can look at the members overview section.
Don't forget to put in our green and yellow in your mocs, the fierce Mitgardian colors! If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. To get an impression of Mitgardia just read along.


Section One: Guilds of Historica Background

The bard’s song tells a tale of a world long forgotten,

Race against race, clan against clan, shields clashed with swords; long ago when Men of the Lion fought Men of the Falcon, and human armies succumbed to Orcs and undead. Each group clashed with its neighbor for power, unleashing upon the world a great scourge, and the arcane land was thrown into chaos. When it all seemed but lost, a council of wise men and sages was summoned. From all the lands they came to convene in the old world’s great city; the fortress of Cedrica.
To settle the grievance and end a millennium of bloodshed, the sages declined all the treaties of old and joined all the clans into one mighty Kingdom; Historica. They founded the Four Great Regions- each one a realm in itself; - Mitgardia in the North, Nocturnus in the East, Kaliphlin in the South and Avalonia in the West, so that trade routes would spring up and clans would meet in the markets and not in the theatre of war. The wise men chose a family of great honor, to uphold the truce and to keep the four guilds from dispute.

All is not as it once was.  The Black Mage, Victor Revolword, unleashed a new scourge on Historica, taking Cedrica as his own.  Though a united Histrocia defeated Revolword’s elemental monsters, the King of Cedrica is missing and the Guilds of Historica have been thrown into chaos.  With the wise King’s absence, each guild believes it would be best suited to rule all of Historica, internal struggles have brought each realm to the brink of civil war!

This is where the next chapter begins.  The battle to take Cedrica from the Black Mage has ended, but the battle for your own guild has begun!


Section Two: Guild Background and Theme

Mitgardia: Frigid Wonderland

Landscape: From the Frozen Beyond with it's secrets to the vast snowy lands of various clans. Were the clan territory ends the terrain starts with large pine forests and the heavenly mountains. When passed the mountains you'll find the tundra's and finally there's the Demon's Ridge. That's Mitgardia.

No one knows what lies in the Frozen Beyond, not many dare to go there. It his home to fierce creatures like ice dragons and blizzard wolfs, whom haven't crossed the Ebar stream for centuries which connects the Frozen Beyond to the Clan Lands.
Posted Image

The Clan Lands are home to various tribes. The conditions are extremely harsh as there's snow whole year long, here real men are made. At the age of 12 boys are send into the cold by pairs, to make it on their own a whole year long to return as men. Even southern cities send their boys to the clans to learn the ways of the clans.
Posted Image

South of the Clan Lands majestic mountains appear. The Heavenly Mountains, surrounded by pine forests these mountains are home to grand cities like Omurtag. These mountains are also Mitgardia's economical heart, because they contain iron, gold, coal and other treasures.
Posted Image

Past the mountains you'll find the tundra, which holds plains and forests. These lands are Mitgardia's agricultural center and it's home to most of Mitgardia's inhabitants as it also contains Valholl, the capital. In the summer the tempertures can even go up as high as the ones they are used to in Kaliphlin, because of warm winds from Nocturnus´ vulcanoes.
Posted Image

Posted Image

Most south lays the Demon's Ridge. A natural barrier to keep unwanted guest out of Mitgardia. With its steep mountains, combined with the cold, you don't want to go trough them without a guide.
Posted Image

Posted Image

Standard: The Green and Yellow are the colors that's combining all Mitgardians.

Economy: Giant mines with Historica's best treasures and of course Ale are Mitgardia's most important economical resources.


Section Three: Recent Guild History

Altough Victor´s forces could be stopped at the gates of Valholl, the Elemental Monsters unleashed destruction throughout whole Mitgardia. Leaving cities and villages in ruins,  cities like Ondylion were burned to the ground. So it is time for rebuilding the realm. Not only cities, but also families as the cost of men was enormous.

With the Jarl still missing, Elon Chorian is trying everything in his power to keep Mitgardia united. With rumours of Evil powers at work in Nocturnus and plunderers in the realm it will be a task almost impossible...


Section Four:  Guild Leader

Core Leader: Ecclesiastes, this is the member who you go to for changes to the thread, member disputes and game question from Mitgardia.

Guild Leaders: These are the characters who lead the factions for story purposes.

It also wasn't easy to decide, since I really like to build snowy MOCs, but my best ones are those (this and this) which would fit perfectly in Avalonia, so I choose to go this way :wink:.

I haven't really build that many snowy mocs either and my best mocs so far were located in Varlyria. I just like Mitgardia the best and southwestern Mitgardia provides for plenty of almost Avalonia style building opportunities as well! Our country is not as homogeneous as some might think!

Indeed and Avalonia seems to be losing some good members to Nocturnus so Avalonia is lucky to have you. At least your still in Historica :wink:

"internal struggles have brought each realm to the brink of civil war" clearly... though I guess no real sides exist within Mitgardia yet, except the unity side I suppose... In which case the book title will be very misleading at least when it comes to Mitgardia.

I've been following the guilds of historica intently for quite a while, and now I've found employment I can soon afford a decent Camera
So it is with great pride I announce the arrival of Thorrak Seaborne; Esteemed explorer of the Isles of Solitude and Trade Prince of Port Valorgard.
I swear fealty to our Jarl and our homeland of Mitgardia.

(Is it ok to lay claim to an area, I've looked around and found nobody building around there, and I have BIG plans for the Isles)

My brother Scarst has a town or two on the Isle of solitude.  We actually fought the battle of Khordeem there.  He doesn't build often, and I don't know if he will even re-sign up for book 2 since he only ever made a couple free builds and helped me run that battle and Queenscross.  Maybe his town of Skaeren can be under your protection?
