Glantri a land of Warriors?

The current Mystaran Timeline is rapidly escalating towards a new era. The Prospect of a series of non wizard ruled Baronies down the east border just inside the Steppes.

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.

Glantri is far too chaotic to serve as a new frontier--I imagine that it's people have been running for Karameikos, Thyatis, and Ierendi for quite some time now...

I'd see the situation unfold such that these 'Shield Baronies' are holdings for the war-wizards; those magic-users that must play their combat-magic to gain estates. 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 ;) ).
