Ostengrad

Horse hooves thudded as the merchant cart approached the border of Ostengrad. The merchant inhaled and looked to his guards "Keep yer wits about you boys. Strange tales be comin from within these borders." He took a moment to take in its dark beauty before leading his horse into the forest's embrace.

The forest was enormous, shadowy, and ancient. Its canopy was eclipsed by the tall reach of twisted oaks, their leaves and branches allowed for just enough light to pass down for a small sliver of hope that one would make it out. The bark of these ancient oaks seemed blackened and charred, almost as if fire and ash from a battle long ago had choked the very life from the forest. A variation of beastly noises, which were caused by small creatures, resonated through the air, and were strangely synchronized with the sounds of a fight over dominance between larger animals off in the distance. The journey to Ostengrad's capitol would be long, but what riches awaited at the end of the road.....

The County

Welcome to the County of Ostengrad! The county of Ostengrad Is a county with a strong focus on RP/PVE/PVP. We are located in the Duchy of Drakeolm within the kingdom of Blackheart. We evolved from a smaller religious order into a community that now spans almost 50 individuals with different likes and wants. To better facilitate our members we decided to upgrade our pledges with the belief that it would provide our members with enough space be to grow and thrive within our own domain. We are primarily seeking those that have an interest in a more dark and grim medieval theme but all are welcome! Our interests thrive heavily on a good economy, as well as producing elite Knights, In terms of County gameplay we will be focused primarily on defense rather than expansion.
