Description by Stefania Torion.

The Province of Meridiona is almost entirely untamed wilderness. Only the sparsely settled Barony of Caerdwicca and County of Furmenglaive have seen any real development. Caerdwicca subsists by herding sheep and privateering. Agriculture and fisheries support the people of Furmenglaive. This area was largely left to its own devices until recently, with imperial colonisation centred upon developing the northern and central sections of the Isle of Dawn. The Great War almost completely bypassed this area, though the privateers of Caerdwicca and the pirates of Ne'er-do-well clashed fiercely at sea.

The People

The people of Meridiona have been close-knit and insular. Rumours of evil wizards and lycanthropes in the wilds of Furmenglaive have limited immigration there, and the people of Caerdwicca only welcome those with their, shall we say, unique enterprising spirit. The northern area is untamed and largely unexplored, with only a few wandering hermit types calling it home. This may change in the future as the recent colonisation wave continues and more of the empire is developed and settled. Some stalwart immigrants have already increased the settlement of Caerdwicca and Furmenglaive.
