Windholm1

The city of Windholm is situated in the south of the lands of the Fierdsvain. It is originally the seat of power of Earl Sigimund Stonehand. The city lies upon the south-west coast of Pendor, with a vast ocean to the west, mountains and High Pass Fortress to the east, and Valonbray in the north. The area around the city is covered by forests and woodland.

Its villages are Ruvar and Yule.

The city normally starts with no order in it, but 15% of the time, a Lady Valkyries chapter will start here; there is a mutually exclusive, 10% chance of a chapter of Order of the Dawn starting here instead.

It is to note that due to it's position, which is very separated to the rest of the Fierdsvain, and also having the D'Shar frontier so close, will often fall in hands of the D'Shar in the first war between these two.

EconomyEdit

The main exports of Windholm (as the townsfolk will tell you) are Bread, Smoked Fish, Ale, Leatherworks, Tools, Wool Cloth, Pottery and Salt.

GuildmasterEdit

The Guildmaster of Windholm is Helgi Goldtooth. He can be found a short distance up the main street from the city gates, atop the large embankment behind the arms merchant, overlooking the city.

The siege of Windholm differs from the rest. The attackers will spawn very close to the first of the two walls, which has the doors opened. When the attackers pass through the door, they will feel trapped in a cage shaped area. This is ideal for archers, these will spread out through these walls making the volleys of arrows bombard the enemies from many directions if there are many archers. They will have to keep on moving forward, where they'll reach 4 ladders. IA will use these ladders to reach any spot over the walls that surrounded the cage. There are some stairs with spikes which wont allow the IA go through them, BUT the player can go through these spiked stairs getting close to the wall.

TournamentsEdit

Windholm Arena

Windholm Arena.

Tournaments in Windholm can best be described as a celebration of the greatest weapon that the Fierdsvain possess, the Axe. An entirely melee based tourney, they differ however from the tournaments of other Fierdsvain cities by breaking the age old Fierdsvain taboo of fighting on foot, with a lucky few of the combatants receiving a Horse to aid them in combat, along with the following two armaments: Axes and Shields. A fairly straight forward tournament in general, the only real tactic is to get in close and strike hard against your adversaries, and if you are lucky enough to receive a horse then use your mobility to distance yourself from your opponents until an opportunity presents itself to land the knockout blow. It is recommended that Shields are used to maximum effect whilst they last, as not only are Axes one of the most powerful melee weapons that one can bring to bear upon one's assailants, they also bear a notorious reputation for their ability to rend Shields to shreds. Tournaments in Windholm are a short, swift and brutal affair, though as long as skillful blocking is maintained and opportune strikes are used to their full advantage then any experienced fighter will find only slight challenge in this tourney, and a quick and easy opportunity to boost renown and personal wealth.
