Seeking Nordland fluff

I have read through the 'A is for'  on Nordland but there must be more for the Blue n Yellow.

Nope...nothing interesting going on up there at all. It's cold....very cold...and they guard the coast....b.o.r.i.n.g.....

Now Stirland! THERE's a province with some flavor! Probably the most played of all provinces, with some of the best players, most handsome players, and best smelling players of all Empire provinces. Kate Becknisale plays Stirland...and hangs-out with Stirland guys.

Bah Stirland sucks!

Nordland is a very good province with probably the best color scheme in the entire game! Its modeled after the Swedish Empire (yes back in the day Sweden was a power house. See the article... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Narva_(1700)

According to the fluff Nordlanders were not part of the original provinces of the Empire. The area was originally settled by the Norse and then later absorbed into the Empire. Therefore Nordlanders are descended from the Norse and are taller and broader built than the average Imperial.

See, this even works with the Sylvania connection. STIRLAND ALL THE WAY!

(My general is from Stirland, even if the rest of the army is not).

I am not sure this is helping the OP, though . . .

Because she knows, much like hanging out with male hairdressers, that they'll only bother her about her choice in nail polish and whether her outfit is hideous or not.

Actually, Stirlanders are all right. Just don't ask a Stirlander if you can borrow his shoes because then you'll be forced into a long explanation of what shoes are and why you'd want to wear them.  :icon_wink:

In a mad scramble for the shoe, hundreds of young hungry and not so hungry stirland children are trampled to death.

Well at least there's more food for the rest of stirland. (this has 2 meanings)

Nordland is really cool. They fight pirates and party on the beach. Sort of like a Disney film.

I would take the lack of Nordlandic responses as an indication of how interesting the province is. Perhaps all the Nordland players are at a Justin Beiber concert?

Nordland>Stirland

Nordland Color scheme... best in the game.

And what is there really to write about Stirland? They are just surrogates and puppets of the Lannisters... ermm I meant to say the Reiklanders.

As Kate Beckinsale is ALSO from Stirland, I think we all have Oedipus complexes.

The only way Kate Beckinsale is from Stirland is if she's actually a drag queen.

You speak ill of that which is fair beyond your petty understanding! The true believers in the Blessed Kate will destroy you and not rest until your fields are salted, your house is a dunghill, and all your girly magazines have mustaches drawn on the models!
