The Borderlands are an unclaimed territory located on the continent of Northland. The strip of land is bordered by The Blue Circle Republic to the east and north, Green Triangle to the southwest, the Divine Kingdom to the west and the Badlands to the northwest.
In terms of natural topography, The Borderlands are diverse. Landforms range from mountains in the North to swamplands in the South with dense forests and grassy plains in between.
The border between The Blue Circle Republic and Green Triangle has never been firmly established. This discrepency resulted in several disputes between the two nations. Conflict escalated to all out war when vast stores of the rare mineral godomite were discovered in the northern mountains of the disputed area. The war ended when the Green Triangle was fragmented by civil war and surrendered unconditionally to the Blue Circle. Blue Circle’s victory was short-lived, however, as godomite mining proved unprofitable due to demon infestation and difficult terrain. Both countries have lost interest in the territory.
The Borderlands are unclaimed territory and as such, have no central government. The majority of the towns in this region are abandoned. The few that remain are generally self-governed.
Lacking a central government, the borderlands have become something of a haven to the criminal element. Crime runs rampant and the only central form of law enforcement is a system that was developed amongst the scattered towns known as Bounty Bingo. The majority of Borderlands residents are Blue Circle citizens and their descendants. As such, certain towns have received assistance from the Blue Circle Police Corp during extreme circumstances.
What we’ve seen:
Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 both take place in the Borderlands in the town of Huck and the Bloodwood, respectively.
