Last Year's Events: Political marriages into other Modrigswerg clans followed by the opening of trade resulted in an alliance, allowing Throfar to become a force within Ostland and be officially recognised as a jarl. Throfar convinced King Finn to allow raids into Vestland in retribution for that kingdom's offensive against its Modrigswerg population.
