Banner Hall is a "county" in the Ducdom of the Crownlands, primary title of His Lordship, Thurston Highhorse III.

Geography

The arldom borders Bonnyfield to the north-east, Kingswood to the south-east, Stronghold to the south, and the Antagonese ducdom of Bordoor to the north-west. [One] major river flows through the arldom: the Easie; though the Antagonese border is marked by the Pale. The middle of the arldom is dominated by the Arborwood Forest, with lowland plains to the south of the Easie River Valley, and hilly country to the north, beginning the long upward slope toward the White Mountains.

  • The Capital is a couple of days walk to the SW
  • King's Road from Huntsley to Lordbury passes through
  • Old Imperial road, in ruin

Origin and History

The post-Imperial settlers of the region that would be known as Banner Hall were, ethnically, closely related to northern raiders. They were "barbarians" feared and respected for their cavalry and horsemanship. Culturally, they greatly resembled Tolkien's "Rohirrim." By the time the region was absorbed into the Generic kingdom, Bannerish horse-lords were highly sought after as trainers of cavaliers, eventually becoming known as the "seat of Generic chivalry." The region has changed hands between the Generics and Antagonese several times over the following centuries. These days, the population is more "civilized" than its forebears, but retains a certain independent spirit. It continues to be known for its horse-breeders, and an exceptional local breed of destrier, the Valemont.
