The Vulhakara of Vulcanir - Land of a Thousand Kings
The Vulhakara of Vulcanir, also the “Land of a Thousand Kings”, is an Argothic nation lying to the far northeast, centered around the Island of Vulcanir_, or (_Dethek : “Isle of Volcanoes”). It is a nation of fjords, mountains, and the sea, largely isolated from the rest of Argoth by both the Hordelands and the Sorkin Mountains. In fact, it has more contact with the northern coasts of Lythia than with the nations of Argoth itself. Due to this physical separation, little is known about its culture, but the locals are known to subsist mainly on hunting and gathering, supplemented by the national pastime of “viking”. They only rarely make their presence known, either by single bold trader, or as a raiding fleet, ravaging the coasts of southern Lythia and Argoth. The last such raid was in TR 1007, when a vast fleet was exterminated in a storm rumored to have been created by the mages of the Kingdom of Phaedra, and known as the “Orion Disaster”. The only contact since, has been by an occasional trader seeking cloth, metals, and fine wood craft, in exchange for their main trade goods; fish, furs and rare whale oils.
