Jurgenmark is a County bordered by the vast Dragonspine Mountains along the northern border and has a lot of lessor mountain ranges throughout the area. There are several tracts of woodlands along with several lakes. The people of the county live mostly in the Southeast and Southwest of the realm.


This county has a dark and checkered past, perhaps to do with being in the Dragonspine mountains and rarely seeing sunlight.

Since 810wk the Count of Jurgenmark has been conspicuously absent from the court (his court functionaries are still at court and working for the kingdom) but the taxes have still flowed, albeit severely reduced ones due to the reported incursions of trolls, drow, bandits and assorted other monsters.


The Great Plague of 810's

The area has suffered a pestilence/plague since 810wk of an other worldly origin.
The Count has imposed severe travel restrictions since 816wk when around 25% of the population died from this plague. Reports are that the Count was forced to burn entire villages (along with crops and livestock) to keep the plague at bay.

  • This is known to still be a threat and anyone travelling up north to Jurgenmark must declare themselves before doing do.
