The capital of the province of Norrland, Beraton serves as the gateway to the untamed and rugged north.
As a provincial capital Beraton is governed by the Earldoman of Norland [Wilfred with the assistance of the provincial council.
Beraton is well fortified. Large parts of the surrounding town are protected by a set of thick stone walls. The keep is separated from the rest of the town by another wall ensuring the Earldoman has added protection. To land to the south of the city is left marshy and sodden by the River Sanguid and makes it hard to assault the city from that direction.
