Will these Shield Baronies become the new and Expanding Glantri? Will hopefuls pour into the Steppes to conquer a no-mans-land?
Your thoughts are welcome in this future.

They would then utilize both magical and military defenses to protect themselves, likely bolstered with mercenaries and monsters.|
The more I think about it, this could be a basis for an interesting campaign twist involving magic-user students in Glantri. Gaining access into the Great School of Magic, learning and first adventures, political developments, vying for a noble estate (on the border, of course), and then defense and research-quests (Consider this a tie-in to your 'campaign ideas' thread ;) ).
