Welcome to the Ashenhall WikiEdit

Who are we? Edit

We are a Hall (group of players who share a camp of tents) of the Wintermark nation. We role-play that we come from the same town with a shared backstory, namely; Survivors of a barbarian orc occupation. A small trading town built on foundations of diversity and hospitality. We play co-operatively (mostly) using our Hall as a base of operations and a fire to sit by at events. Game Mechanics: Banner: The Embers of Ashenhall (hidden, contact admin to add) Territory: Hahnmark

What Wintermark tradition are we? Edit

A mixture of Suaq, Kallavesi and Stenir, with no dominant tradition.

Where do we live? Edit

Hahnmark, near Southridge, south of Kalpaheim In our small town, built from a reclaimed Imperial watchtower. Previously we lived in Skarsind, north of Gildenheim

What do we do? Edit

Ashenhall is a trading outpost, along the arteries from the Marches and Kallavesa. A safe haven for travellers from bandit attacks. We have all manner of personal resources, with no specific focus.

What were we called before Ashenhall? Edit

Steinhal, but then our hall burned down- hence, Ashenhall

Who burned our hall? Edit

The Thule, during the occupation of Skarsind. They killed our thane too.

How did we escape? Edit

Acting Thane Cadarn hid us in a mine. We stayed there until the all clear, then started to rebuild.

Who was our previous thane, before Cadarn? Edit

Aelle. Torstein was the founder, a couple of generations ago.

So why did we move to Hahnmark? Edit

Skarsind was given to the Imperial Orcs, and our town was barely rebuilt anyway.

What's Ashenhall like now? Edit

A motte and bailey fortified town, with a watchtower and great hall at one end, on top of a hill. The walls and buildings are improved every season.

Do I need to memorise all of this? Edit

Hell no. When playing, we mostly just wing it.
