Icemark is the north-westernmost of the realms in the Lands of the Linnorm Kings,[1] and is home to the Varki, a human ethnicity that is said to have descended from Varisians who traveled north and intermarried with Tian exiles who had traveled over the Crown of the World.[2]

Government

Unlike the other realms claimed by the Lands of the Linnorm Kings, no Ulfen Linnorm King has ever ruled in Icemark, though today the Varki ranger Nankou claims the title of Linnorm King, along with titular rulership over the region.[3][4][2]

Economy

The Varki earn their living as fishers, hunters, and trappers, as well as herding the reindeer of the northern tundra. They follow these herds wherever they go and pay no attentions to borders or boundaries, traveling into other Linnorm Kingdoms, or even into Irrisen (where they are strangely left in peace), or even into the distant Realm of the Mammoth Lords.[2]

Geography

Settlements

Seer's Home is the only major settlement in Icemark, and therefore the de-facto capital.[1]
