City-State of Dire
The Ice-March is a land of frost and blood, soaked in the valor of those who would stand as a bulwark against barbarism. Barbarian tribes, orc hordes, giants, centaur, and more would sweep down from the north into the civilized lands if not for the men of this land.
Dire sits as the social, political, and military center of this land. As long as it and its king stand, civilization stands.
