Hutzlun FelagsTHORGRIM THE DIFFICULTFelags
FUTURE KING OF HUTZLUN
are Hutzlunr mercenaries companies, based around ship crews and frankly little more than pirates and raiders for hire. Their felagi
(‘comrades’) are men sworn to loyalty in battle and hardship, dedicated to the plunder of the southern lands. Their own feuds supposedly set aside, bands of Hutzlunrs love to sail down to the disputed border and sell their mighty axes to whoever can pay or provide a good opportunity for pillage and plunder.
They are notoriously ill-disciplined and treacherous, but none can deny the useful savagery of the northmen, the power of their axes and their skill in brawling battle. Most of their howling, beast-headed standards stand on the Dummonii side of the river, but gangs switch alleigance so often, its impossible to know exactly who is on what side any given day.
There’s nothing like order or leadership among the felags; much like Hutzlun itself, its every man for himself. If they have a leader, it’s Thorgrim the Difficult
– some laugh at his moniker, but no man gets to name their own story, as the Hutzlun saying goes... and it fits him well. Cantankerous, treacherous, argumentative and contrary, he's a thorn in everyone's side.. but undisputadly the biggest and meanest of all the raider chiefs.
Thorgrim's stated aim in the border wars is to "find a southern man worth honest killing” but rumours persist that his true objective is to find the Uovervindelig
, the ’invincible shirt’ of Hutzlun myth – a long-lost hauberk of steel impenetrable by axe or sword, said to be destined for the back of the Hutzlun’s rightful king.
