Original Notes

Adelinde is a noble of the Donncha family which rules a fiefdom recently fallen on hard times. The family has been beset with murder and incest, the former lord, her own father having murdered his uncles wife before taking his own life when she was ten. Her uncle now rules alone and a barren plague has beset the land, crops struggle to grow and not a single healthy child has been born in years. Adelinde has only her sole surving brother to rely on and of late he has taken to drinking and gambling rather than addressing his responsibilities.

New Lanark

History and Geography

Records of New Lanark within the core are scant and only really relate to the last ten years or so.

Its geography is almost unknown as the mists had the place almost totally isolated up until very recently. Details are beginning to emerge as traders and merchants are begin to go to and from the land. What is clear is that it lacks any significant natural resources and is cold, wet and windy with difficult rocky hilly and mountainous terrain. Sheep are a big deal and about the main thing they 'grow'. It seems to have a small population, maybe a twentieth or less of that of Darkon and no major cities or industry to speak of. The full extent of its land area in the interior remains unknown.

Its technology level is broadly late middle ages but due to its isolation and lack of trade with neighbours it hasn't got the smattering of imports from Lamordia and Falkovnia that other less advanced nations have. Firearms remain almost entirely non existent.

It has a feudal system of government determined by hereditary rule. The ruler of the land seems to be a Duke rather than a King, why it is unclear, perhaps it was once a part of another, larger Kingdom. The term 'new' in its name seems to reinforce this speculation, it's origins seem to be as a colony of some sort. The seat of rulership is the aptly named Castle Lanark, which also is the ancestral home of the Donncha clan. In the dim and distant past the land was loosely ruled by quite savage chiefs and clans, the old religion was pagan and echoes of that history remain in the wilder parts.

Castle Lanark is perched on a spit of land jutting into Loch Erskine, half a mile away from Glenyon, a town of several thousand souls on the shore of the fresh water lake. Glenlyon is also the largest settlement in the land.

New Lanark's only obvious strategic importance is its location, nestled between the two great powers of Falkovnia and Darkon. It is fortunate, or unfortunate enough depending on one's view to offer a (rocky and dangerous) invasion route from one to the other.
