You think, vikings are wild? YOu never visited the far north!
About this creation
Beyond the northern mountains, beyond the wild but still civilized culture of the northern kingdom, a last piece of human world marks the northern end of West-Legonia.
According to their relation with the other northern peoples, they have the same cultural basement as the northmen and vikings. But centuries of hard surviving made them more strange. Centuries of isolation made them suspicious to other peoples. Most live as hunters. Settlements can be found in the lowlands and also in ljumhill.
The lowlands is a tundra region of snowy fields, where environment is so hard, that only strong Gelojhors, monsters and icebears could survive for longer periods. But also some rare plants are growing here in summer. The biggest dangers would be the deadly blizzards and cold nights.
The center area ljumhill in a valley between the northern mountains and the Skattjhore mountains contains some small forests and the last trees in the north. Also viking settlers come in the last years to expand their territories along the regin river. But the cold north is too far for long travels, so people of lowlands may never see other villages.
Along the coasts of the lowlands, the hunting area for valannats (walrus things) and sagfishs (swordfish things) begins. The Wojak is a bigger ship type than the Kajak and used for fishing. Its speciality is its long and only sail.
Only a few hundreds people exist so all Gelojhors are self-supporter. In the lowlands people live from hunting vallannats, ice bears or sagfishs. All parts like skin, meat and bones are used for different things.
Gelohjors of the coasts live in iglus or stone buildings.
The ice fortress
There's no central government in the north, so tribe councils or familiy elders decide bigger questions. The Gelojhor are known as barbarian warriors using axes.
At greater settlements, fortified castles like this guard treasures, supplyment and offer saftey of wolves or other monsters in dark winter nights. The ice fortress fake-set comes with 2 Gelohjor warriors, a viking prisoner and tribe’s father.
The basement is build into an ice rock, this unique architecture is the only kind of art in the Gelojhor culture. Like all northern peoples, they build simple and practical but the ice fortresses are warm inside without melting the walls down.
This works by a perfect designed air circulation system. Simple rocks are used for stabilisation, snow pressed into solid blocks, which also hold attacks of warmachines for a while. But who would pull heavy warmachines through the snowy north?
The throne rome. The tribe’s father meet visitors here and hold judges.
The throne itself is a secret chest for treasures.
Prison and supply store is also behind solid walls of ice and stone.
A functional trapdoor points directly to the prison.
Another trap for intruders, who break through the gates.
The skattjhore is a dangerous mountain region, where noone live. Also animals are rare because walking through the heavy storms at the sharp cliffs is some kind of suicide. More interesting is the underground because in many caves worthy crystals, diamonds and other minerals are assumed. So, the vikings are coming to get the secret treasures of the icy land of their Gelohjor brothers.
And for treasures and hate people would always fight...
