Located in the cold lands south of Ordan and Durfaehn, the kingdom of Ulfgard has long been a kingdom of warriors and survivors. Existing on the northernmost frontiers of human civilisation, the people of Ulfgard have had no shortage of challenges to overcome, both from the land itself and their neighbours. Nevertheless, the people of Ulfgard were able to overcome these challenges through their strength and tenacity, and become a prosperous nation.
The people of Ulfgard value strength and self-sufficiency, traits born of the challenges they've faced in their early history of living in the outer reaches of human lands. As a result of these traits, many Ulfgardians are skilled hunters and trackers, as well as some of the fiercest warriors among the human kingdoms.
Due to its proximity to the The Elderwood, as well as a few other smaller forests, Ulfgard has a strong lumber industry.
