Foundation[]

Not much is known about the creation of the empire, but it is certain that the empire had foundations and strong ties created because of the fallen empire called the White Order.

After the First Dwarf Civil War in the fifth age, then Uzbad Moradin, strengthened the ties between the northern factions, uniting the main factions under the same banner.

The empire was initially consolidated with only 3 factions, Durins Folk, Rivendell and Woodland Realm, but in its first days it saw Arnor joining the Empire.

VA 164. Revision[]

The year VA 164. marked the year of revision within the old Northern Pact empire. These changes mostly consisted of a real rulebook and gave more power to the council. Other changes include the addition of a new banner adopted from an old Arnorian concept. The name of the empire changed as well to The Northern Kingdoms.

Rule Revisions[]

Once the rules are published revisions will be updated here.

[]

As mentioned before the banner of The Northern got changed and adopted from an old Arnorian concept. The banner features a spinning sun which represents the endless circle of birth and death. It also includes knots as decoration and lines interloping in an 8 shape symbolizing infinity. This has much to do with the many reforms, destructions and recreations of the Arnorian kingdoms of old.
