Unkerlant Travel Log: Helmgard

The folk of Helmgard are a pious, hard working people. And by pious, I mean puritanical zealots who see witches around every corner, and outsiders as heretics in need of a good burning. It is their mission to cleanse the world of the non-believer. Fortunately for the rest of the world, Helmgarders, like most Unkerlantians, seldom leave the confines of their own border. Helmgard’s neighbors tend to tolerate them, as long as their missionaries keep to a minimum. Occasionally, however, the surrounding provinces will gang up to teach Helmgard a lesson. Helmgarders take these beatings in stride, as it only adds more martyrs to the cause.
The Arch Bishop Bloefeld runs his lands like a well oiled machine. The towns of Volgen and Herzig are operate with the precision of a clock, only stopping for a random witch burning now and then.
Helmgard soldiers fight with a righteous fury seldom seen on the battlefields of today
