Rindland is a duchy found in the very north of Vatharond. The people of Rindland are geographically separated from the rest of Nora and have a strong sense of internal culture, but they are still very loyal to their connections to the High Crown and Alexandria.

The region has vocalized their protests against the Severing War and do not wish to succeed from Nora. Some nobles are talking about succeeding from Vatharond and siding with the Noran Armies.
