# The Barbarians ¶

The Barbarians are a strong, rough but friendly tribe, as long as you don't harm them. Their home is up in the north, between old forests, mountains and grasslands. Their soldiers are masters of axes, so it is no wonder that the barbarian lumberjack is the fastest one to be found amongst all the tribes. ¶




## History ¶

Deep in the ancient forest of Al'thun dwell the tribes of the lowland barbarian people. The shadows of the trees have been their hunting grounds forever. As wild and primitive people, the Barbarians have only established culture or civilization in lose bounds, forged by marriage or blood oath. Rage, war and massacre were common among the numerous barbarian leaders or eldests. As the number of Barbarians grew, they began to populate the hills and fields beyond the edge of their beloved forests. But soon their enemies rose against the wild people, forcing them to stand united against a common opponent. ¶

In these times, Chat'Karuth, son and heir of Karuth, became the eldest of one of the mightiest clans among the trees. It was due to his striving that for the first time in generations, the clans united under one common banner. All clans gave an oath of fealty to only one leader so that the cradles and the homelands of all tribes could be defended against all impure blood. Chat'Karuth established law and order in the blossoming young empire and the Barbarians grew to be a force to influence the destiny of the green valleys and the high mountains of Widelands. ¶

When Chat'Karuth died, he was an old man, father to three strong and ambitious sons and warlord to an army that could face any enemy willing to rise against the ancient forests. Throughout his glorious reign, Chat'Karuth prepared his eldest son Thron to succeed him as the tribes warlord in due course - a decision that left his two brothers unsatisfied. The old warlord knew that. As his father told him, Thron left the capital Al'thunran, the home of the throne among the trees and withdrew his forces to the high hills where he buried the body of his father and swore to the gods and his spirit, that he'd return to re-established order. While his brothers rage in blind war against Thron and the few forces he left to secure the borders of Al'thun, the young warlord seeks to reunite his ambitious brothers and force the tribes to march once again under a common banner. ¶




## Economy ¶

The Barbarian economy is very simple and based on usefulness. Beautiful, but useless wares or achitecture would never be made by the hands of a barbarian. Further information can be found at: ¶
