Hallengard is a major faction in Central Tradelands. Isle Hallengard is also their home, as well as being in the northernmost point of the Central Tradelands. The faction consists of former mercenaries, and some members of old Verdantine Sovereignty, from after the Verner and Verdantine War. It’s flag is Viking themed.
Hallengard's theme and culture are based off Vikings. When Hallengard was introduced, they were hired mercenaries for Verner Expedition. Theywere tasked with holding Fort Verner. Until later on, Hallengard fought Nova Balreska for their freedom. In the end, Chancellor WilkosGaming after being warned by King Hahaboomman1234 of Whitecrest, gave Hallengard their independence and rights to Fort Verner. To this day, Fort Verner is known as Isle Hallengard.
Their navy weapons are the Hallengard Battleaxe and the Hallengard Dagger.
The island formerly belonged to Verner Expedition as Fort Verner, now belongs to Hallengard as Isle Hallengard. Rock quarries and trees located outside the fort, gives quick access to limited resources.
There is a sunken Atlas, previously a slave ship carrying former citizens of Balresk and former Inyolan slaves wedged between two rocks just outside of the island. Even after many years since it's wrecking, It stands as a monument to the people who would later found Nova Balreska and Hallengard. Inside the Atlas there's a larger map of Tradelands including Purshovia, Burkeland, Inyola and Balresk.
On the eastern beach of Hallengard there lies a few rowboats marooned on the island from the shipwrecked tlas.
For a wooden fort, the place seems quite fortified by those who inhabit it. Around the fort are several long gun stations to keep ships at bay. Around the center are two large mortars which helps to even further protect those inside the fort. The walls are high enough that it requires two people to even get over. Some are crafty enough to even use the rocks to climb over. With walkways across the fort walls, those climbing over are easy targets from a ranged weapon.
Due to the island being small, fortifications are essential to keeping Hallengard safe. That's why each cannon station covers a small side of Isle Hallengard, giving the island near full 360 degrees of coverage, if not for the rocks. Where the cannons can't reach, the mortars will sure pound away at those who dare even come close.
The wooden fort walls are surprisingly durable to attacks. Most of all, being tall enough to keep even the most troublesome people out. Although some rocks are low enough to allow people to climb over and into the fort.
With the increased amount of people coming into Hallengard, so has the rapscallions that upset the peace. To counter than, Hallengard has added a local jail. It's also the place where Hallen members who combat log are sent to.
To the contrary of the small island, it boasts a long deck for ships to enter its port. Probably to know the difference of local attackers sailing in, from busy merchants buying and selling cargo. Selling cargo from Whitecrest gives +10 more doubloons than going to Nova Balreska. For such profit margins, most people would sell at Nova Balreska at that rate.
