Post Greyhawk Wars: 585 CY
Frost Barbarians (Kingdom of Fruzth)
Ruler: His Most Warlike Majesty, King Hundgred of the Fruztii
Capital: Krakenheim (pop. 3,400)
The Frost Barbarians are the weakest of the three Sue1 peoples inhabiting the Thillronian Peninsula (which they name Rhizia). For nearly 30 years, they have been under the thumb of the Snow Barbarians, but their defiant young king, only 20 years of age, has made it plain that he regards the Fruztii as equals to their eastern neighbors. As yet, the Snow Barbarians have not brought matters to a head, because all the barbarians have happily cooperated in opposing the Great Kingdom and allying with Ratik to fight the Bone March humanoids. The Fruztii are foremost in friendship with Ratik; this has increased their prominence in the barbarian alliance.
The Frost Barbarians are a strong-willed people, stubborn and chaotic, but honorable and people of their word. They are fine seamen: their longboats are masterpieces of both construction and decoration. They are fearless fighters and suffer privations and hardship without complaint They feast and drink to excess, and have no time for tact or manners. They do not respect book learning or wizards, but they hold their bards (skalds) in very high esteem indeed. Like the other barbarians, they feel the deception of Iuz keenly, and skirmishes against Stonefist across the Griff Mountains are currently planned by King Hundgred.
