Hadewald is the land of guilds, seafaring and crafts. In the dense forests of the realm, the timber industry is the predominant profession. Unlike in many other realms, no royal house rules here, but a council of masters. This council, set up by the craft guilds, is responsible for legislation and jurisdiction in the country. Hadewalders are known for their courage and strength.

The history of Hadewald
Attack on Gasdaria (122 b. EC)
In a complete surprise, the new council leader, Grimrosch Snækolson, attacks Gasdaria. Under protest, but restraint from the other kingdoms, Grimrosch reaches out his greedy fingers to Gasdaria. The confident king underestimates the Gasdarian military by far and finally has to admit defeat after a bloody two-year war.
