Knowledge Level: 
2 - Very common, even the farmers of Midgard know this.

Large regions of Heimr are not yet settled or cultivated. In these wild place the law of nature rules, and the Heimrians who live their submit to their harsh environment. If you look at the official maps of Heimr you will see that most of the land is claimed to be under control of either Asgard, Midgard or one of the Southern Heimrian rulers. In reality, the leaders of these areas have very little influence in the wilderness within their borders. These races are controlled by nature herself, and are protected by the races that live their: the Feyfolk, Nymph, Shanata, Merfolk and Lizardman.
