Zimaskog

"Just join our side - my people need your help when we're being pushed into the mountains!"

"I cannot openly aid you."

"Then the blood of my people, your own people's kin, is on your hands, Stormwatch."

- communications between Arle of Zimaskog and Arle Sten Stormwatch as Norrasjo and Zimaskog fall out

History

Ancient

Modern

Breaking from Norrasjo

Due to the difficulties of the Lognefjalls slowing the speed of governance and defense, the people split amicably from Norrasjo and founded their own Arling.

By agreeing to this division, you and we are no longer the same people, and you are agreeing to stand on your own.
Thydian Unification Wars

During the Unification of Theydim, Zimaskog agreed to follow High King Magnus the Red-Eyed in his conquest of Theydim.

Thydian Civil War

Zimaskog has been fairing poorly during the Civil War as members of Ostufer's faction had been warring over the eastern sides. While not an exceedingly wealthy Arling, Zimaskog has mines and timber from the Lognefjalls and towns near where the whales migrate, similar to their western neighbors in Norrasjo.

Said western neighbors have refused to side with Zimaskog's allies within the Capitolist faction of the civil war

Most of the conflict over Zimaskog appears to be attempts to grab land for Arlings to hold onto and claim tithes from.

I hear your pain, but I do not believe a High King is what we need for the future of Theydim. I will, however, grant you permission to travel through the Arling to the Capitolists and if you choose, to resettle in Norrasjo.

I love the quote at the beginning. The relationship list at the side is really nice too.

I had actually forgotten this article had the diplomacy relations showing still. I most hid them because their text is full of placeholders and likely out of date information - Zimaskog is not at all concerned Norrasjo will invade anymore, for example. The poor relationship between the two is because Zimaskog needs help, but historical documents keep Norrasjo from helping in times of war
I'm really glad you like the quote, I wanted something that was dramatic and painted the idea that the two have been close but also divided.
