The Hold of Hjalmarch; nestled between Haafingar, the seat of Impireal influence, and Whiteshore, the dwindling neutral land between Hjalmarch and the beating heart of the Stormcloak Rebellion. It is in the heart of Hjalmarch, nestled against the Hjal River, south of Morthal, our story begins. On both banks of the Hjal a large town can be found - Miklagaard. A simple but large town, home to 95 souls as of the coming of Frostfall. The town of Miklagaard started as a small milling and fishing village down the Hjal River. Humble are the folk of Miklagaard, content with their livelihoods, making honest livings and honest gold with their daily toils, despite the town's origin.
Founded by the Varygas Clan at the coming of Ysgramor and his Companions, Miklagaard was originally a garrison against the people known as the Forsaken. The jagged skeletons of towers still rise out of the ground all around Miklagaard, suggesting that it was once a great city. Dungeons and burial mounds still pepper both shores of the Hjal, strange moans haunting the landscape by night. Over the untold centuries, Miklagaard has turned from a mighty military garrison to a humble township, avoiding fights rather than resolving them. The Varygas Blood runs in the people of Miklagaard just as the Hjal River flows through the center of the town.
For the greater part of the Rebellion, Miklagaard has remained unmolested by Imperials and Stormcloaks, save for the occasional passing garrison or surviving veterans, extending the customary hospitality of salt and bread and medical help. Miklagaard's neutrality is on the verge of breaking, now. With the coming of dragons and the return of the Dragonborn, the civil war has escalated, entire villages and townships burnt to the ground, leaving burnt skeletons and shattered lives in its wake.
With the coming of Dragons and tales of the Dragonborn, all of Skyrim is nearly in upheaval with the blades of the Empire and the Stormcloaks coming to clash atop Miklagaard, either spilling or awakening the ancient warrior blood of those who would call Miklagaard home.
