The Freelands is an area in the northern Hearthlands, south of the Icebarrier Mountains and north of Royalmark. Larger than many of the nearby kingdoms, the Freelands is not a nation itself, but rather a large expanse of territory unclaimed by any sovereign. While many lords and nobles rule various small sections of the Freelands, kings are decidedly unwelcome.
There are many small towns and settlements scattered about the Freelands. Some of them are autonomous or democratic, but many are ruled by lords, mayors, or councils. Up until, no lord was gutsy enough to claim a title higher than Baron.
In the eastern end of the Freelands you can find the territory’s largest city, Aslov, and the nearby Dalsetter. In the west, towards Angmark, is the frontier trading town of Marikest, the agricultural city of Beckinsire, and the often bloodily contested Brightstone Keep.
