In ancient days, Northkeep[[shire]] was established as the northernmost bastion of the Kingdom of Ansteorra, to protect its central and southern provinces against hordes of invading foreigners. In the years of peace since then, the group has prospered and grown to become the Barony of Northkeep, the northernmost [[Barony]] in the kingdom. Situated upon a pike between the [[Barony of Wiesenfeuer]] in the Kingdom of Ansteorra and the [[Shire-March of Grimfells]] in the [[Kingdom of Calontir]], Northkeep's lands extend to cover many people, including those in the [[Canton of Chemin Noir]] and the former [[Cantons of Middleguard]] and [[Canton of Rundel|Rundel]].
