The Greater North
The Greater North takes place on the continent of Wahrheim, populated mostly by an array of Nordic-style peoples and societies (though there is a smattering of other people that have crossed the often storm-tossed seas and decided to live there, for whatever reasons).
As is covered in more detail on the page about the Land Rush, a very large part of the continent that has not been accessible during recorded history or human memory has opened up. The king of Wahrheim has sent scouts out and discovered it seemingly empty of sentient peoples, and so has offered up a unique chance… allowing anyone adventurous enough to prove their mettle and tame the land to have large chunks of it. Even a small homestead provides the promise of independence and having a say in local politics, larger ones beckon to those with aspirations to nobility and wealth.
