Stalland the Whitelander
« on: October 25, 2009, 09:33:43 PM »
Stalland

Male Whitelander standing around 6’1” in height, which is just around average height for a whitelander but weighing in at around 15st he is broadly built and well muscled that gives him a shorter, squatter appearance that most whitelanders.

His hair is shoulder length, light brown curly hair that is kept clean and combed by Stalland as is his full length and well groomed beard so while he is typically bearded he is well kept and neat looking.

When not dressed for war he will invariably be wearing a good quality doublet of Pyraxian style, moleskin breeches of whitelander cut, leather knee high boots and a broad brimmed hat, though sometimes his dress sense is a little outlandish.

If he is arrayed for war then at his broad heavy belt he will hang, a whitelandish skyne knife, a well balanced hand axe, a long handled and heavy bladed skeggöx hanging from a brass ring on his belt as well as a pair of smaller hurlbat tucked in the back of his belt, while strapped to his back will be a composite short bow and a large round shield with no device painted onto it while wearing a full suit of heavy mail and a fine helmet which makes him look every inch the archetypical Hutzlunr warrior.

In either case he is typically accompanied by his pet Zolthound, Hengist.

Stalland is a Whitelander in his mid 30s, and of an average height of a Whitelander but with a broad build and a muscular frame. He is as strong, and hardy as northmen are, but perhaps lacks the fine honing the true Whiteland warriors have because rather than being the stereotyped whitelander axeman he is a poet, historian, law speaker, sailor, translator and merchant of sorts, as well as a warrior.

Originally from near the stead of Oggthorpe, he has seen several voyages from the Whitelands, having travelled down from the eastern coast of the Whitelands from Ragnarthorpe to Woodport in Dummoni and back, across the Whitelands, crossing the mountains to Folorn then down the west coast of the continent by sea to Raphelia, Dromal an Batar then on to Nosterpyrax.

He has been in Nosterpyrax for a couple of years now, having arrived just before the “invasion” and Night of the Trembling Flame. Unfortunately when it happened he was away from his ship, carousing and wenching, and his shipmates went out to fight the Pelosian Navy and were sunk, scattered and otherwise never seen again, while Stalland manned the barricades of Fireside with the common folk there.

Since then Stalland has been making a living in the city doing all manner of jobs on both sides of the law and found he quite likes it here, the cosmopolitan nature appealing to his sense of learning and artistic nature and now he can often be found in the local taverns, having his ale bought for him in exchange for his recitals of poems, sagas and stories he has learned from his stay.

Generally he tries to avoid violence though he isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty if needs be, preferring instead to rely in the implied threat of “Whitelander with an axe”. But to those that know and work with him he is a joker a carouser and a pragmatist, but those that also know him will say that if roused there is no mistaking he is from the famed stock of northern warriors.
