Not so long ago, refugees of many races from the corupt lands to the south traveled into the harsh nothern forests of Sandovar and swore fealty to their hero, the human Rodderick the Great. Now united under the banner of a white pegasus breaking black chains on a blue field, this is a mutlicracial nation 111 years old.
Humanoids raid the northern teritoris with growing boldness, taking steel, women, and wealth, in the name of a new chief...
This is the legnd of Kalto's Horde.

Sheildmaidens: A Level Five Pathfinder Story of Sword, Sorcery, and Sex.
"Oi, yay, oi yay, oi yay! All good citizens pray attend the procoloations of his Majesty, Rodderick the V.
"It is with solemn gravity that his majesty announces on this, the 15th day of spring in the 17th year of his reign, 111th year since the foundin of our nation, that certain protections in the code of gentleman's warfare, instituted by his father Roderick the Peacemaker, must be repealed.
"As increasing border raids have shown that the savage races cannot behave as gentlemen in war, the following proclomations of Roderick the Peacemaker are heareby null and void.
"The proclomation extending the code of genteel conduct in war to the warriros of the savage races is hereby striken.
"The proclemation extending the protection of genteel treatment to the fair sex captured in war to the savage races is hereby striken.
"However, the proclomation extending the protection of humane treatment to children between their naming and their coming of age to children of the savage races is not stricken. Nor is this nations traditional ban on enslaving prisoners of war, even of the savage races.
"Further, it is with great solemnity, that his majesty reinstitutes the bounty upon the scalps of warriors of the savage races institutded by his grandfather, Rodderick the Conquerer, and only that upon the scalps of warriors.
"Finaly, as the savage races have proved unable to behave in a gentlemanly fashion towards his citizents of the fair sex, his majesty offers the following rewards for the rescue of his people from the savages. For the return of a daughter of the nobility to her father's house, the crown will pay twice her ransome value in gentlemanly warfare. For the return of a daughter of common blood to her father's house, he will pay the heroes the value of her dowry."
The word went out on that day in the City and the Seven Towns. Over the next week it spread by official courier to the villages and hamlets, mines and elvenwoods and loyal nomads.
By the 25th of spring, fighting men and women were forming up into small bands to protect their nations borders for glory and gold.
In Harold's Shire, at the inn known as Easing the Badger, a band of shieldmaidens and adventerous men met to form a company.
This is there story.
