MALDENHAM


THE BASICS
City: Maldenham

  • McGrath

ABOUT


Maldenham is not an easy place to live, nor is it particularly hospitable to outsiders who don't know her lands. The Keep stands tall and firm, and even though it's seated firmly in the North. Perhaps it's the White Flow that comes from the north and feeds into the soil, or perhaps its just the tenacity of those hardened men that work the soil but even at its seat in the North, Maldenham is lush and capable of feeding its people and then some. Wheat, Corn, Potatos, and live stock make its stores of food grow in abundance, surrounded by a valley on one side and a river on the other, its natural defenses are a struggle in and of themselves making the people of Maldenham who live outside her walls relatively safe, and prosperous from the trade that comes down the nearby river.

The Castle of Maldenham, Lionskeep is a proud keep within itself with strong, resolute walls that go along the far outside of it. While it might not be the towering castle of some of the Provinces, it's more like a walled town with a large, impetuous manor house near the far end. It's solid, defensible, and a proud sight to stare upon. It's no wonder that its lasted all these years, under the command of the Montrose House.


The Vassel Houses:
  • House Valdez of Beauciel
  • House Toussaint of Vale de Lys


CULTURE

Social Customs:

Fierce, loyal to their roots, and somewhat more welcoming of outside society, particularly traders. The men of Maldenham, a good majority of them, have been mercenaries and men at arms and are worldly in and of their own rights despite having a slight rash of xenophobia in recent years due to the plague. They're highland families of fighters, archers, and farmers. They have yearly archery tournaments and several bowyers who compete for business here since Maldenham has the finest archers in all of Arbrecht, it's of little wonder that it's such a large portion of their culture as it's an artistry there. They're a warlike people who've converted their violent energy into relatively "safe" pass times.


Religion:




Economics:




Military & Weaponry:



Recent History
Trade has only recently re opened due to Maldenham closing its borders because of the plague that ravaged the kingdom as well as Arbrecht, and because of that, there's been a recent economic boom because of the amount of food that's been kept in storage rather than sold to passing traders, along with a renewal of ideas and scientific advance that's come from travelers and traders alike passing through her borders.
