    Nidaros Borders
    The Borders of Nidaros stretch from the Gyldenfeld Border to the Skara Brae coast and from the Fortune Bay coast to to the Southern Outpost near the mountains. Traditionally, the southern border of Nidaros was the southern most fields. It was not until recently that Nidaros has started to expand further south.
    Nidaros History
    Nidaros is a player-run town between Britain and Skara Brae, along the road. It is located near the Hedge maze, on the Chesapeake shard. This text covers it's founding, the key people behind it, its characteristic features and the current situation of the town.
    Nidaros was founded on opening day of Trammel, during the renaissance year. Legend says that a friend of Lord British, a Viking names Leif Wonswar helped fight to conquer the lands of Trammel. He fell mortally wounded on the mound of compassion in Nidaros. To this day, flowers or grass do not grow on that spot.
    Key people in founding and development: Nidaros was founded originally by Valguard the Grey, his wife Jess and someone named Da Fishman. As well as other people who settled in the area, Lothar, the guild master of the Knights of Chivalrous Heart (KCH), and marlene, who founded the Knights of Nidaros (KfN). Also the Ranger Traders of Nidaros (RTN), founded by Mystic Warrior. There were also a few noteworthy private citizens over the years, who contributed to town, by helping buy back buildings. And at its peak Nidaros had five guilds, including an order guild. A town citizen even wrote a real song about it.
    The most characteristic feature of Nidaros is its fighting arena, made with water barrels and situated next to the tavern, called the Dew Drop Inn. It is there that the guilds in town had weekly tournaments or sparring nights. And sometimes Shard wide open tournaments, as well as other events. Both main town guilds catered to a different clientele, for either the casual player or the role-players. And they coexisted for awhile.
    None of the original founders remain on this day, yet the name still lives on. The original guild master of KfN having left, that guild was caught in a loop of electing new guild masters every month; after a while, those disputes tore it apart. Dissidents also tried to exert influence over KCH which caused a change of name and leadership where many were excused from the guild. It became Keepers of the Crimson Rose (KCR). The marked the collapse of town politics and of town guilds. KCR still stands strong in town to this day, but is the only guild in town, aside from a handful of citizens, those not enough to officially have a town council or government. It is our hope for the future that we would find new people and guilds that would like to establish themselves in the area and take part in the town.
    -Anton, Scribe of the Keepers of the Crimson Rose, Nidaros
    (editors note, this was written in about 2004)
    As time passed Nidaros fell silent once again. Then came the coming of Queen Dawn, and her decree that the old townships be recognized. Cymbria Devereaux and Tesla Radcliff rebuilt Nidaros and petitioned the Queen for a Town Banner. In an effort to continue to rebuild the city, Governor Winfield of PaxLair announced that Nidaros was now a member of the PaxLair Statehood and Appointed the Lord Zanku as its new Mayor and Blackheart was appointed Assistant mayor. During the reign of Mayor Zanku, new people moved to the area. A new Lighthouse was built, the Black Dagger Saloon was added to the town hall (which is on the Dart League circuit) and a treaty was signed with the neighbors in Gyldenfeld. Also During this time was the first of many Nidaros Boat Races. Nidaros is also the home of the Notorious "BLOOD REGATTA", a bring back tradition of the old races Nidaros used to have. During the troubles of Kendrick Morrow and the ensuing charges of insanity towards the mayor, The Maedhros Rune Library was moved to Nidaros and stands there still. Nidaros is still an important stopping point on the Skara Brae to Britain road.
    Nidaros at one time recently was rumored to have a "SMUGGLING" operation going on and some dealings with Notorious Pirates, but investigators could not put a finger on any evidence.... Rumors still have it that an underground smuggling operation is still on going....
    When rebellion formented in the lands Mayor Zanku ordered the fleet of Nidaros first to Skara, to defend against raiders, and then to Trinsic to defend against aggression from Britain.
    Nidaros has a growing reputation for fine beverages that are hand brewed by Lord Maedhros or imported from Ilshenar my the Nidaros Trading Company. In 2012 The Nidaros Cathedral was built by Bart Gruff. This Cathedral is a reconstruction of the Cathedral built in the home town of Leif Wonswar.
    -Nidaros Librarian and Assistant Mayor, The Honorable Lord Maedhros, proprietor of the Nidaros Rune Library, warrior and scholar.

    Guild Town History!
    It is said that about a few hundred years ago this pirate island ran red with the blood of fleeing pirates from a contingent of the infamous pirate Kidd Holley. Seeking refuge from the slaughter of the vengeful Royal Navy off the shores of Buccaneers Den the remaining fleet of pirates managed to crash land on Bald Island.
    Tired and worn they thought the worst be over. Sadly mistaken, the Royal Navy tracked this raggedy band of pirates to Bald Island were they finished the last of Holley's famous Crew. The pirates bodies laid mutilated on the beach when the Royal Navy was done. It is rumored that the serpents and alligators grew so big because they drank and ate the remains of the pirates vengeance-filled hearts.
    Then about November of last year a new band of pirates claimed this island... the Red Dagger Pirates.

    One of the first and longest standing structures on the island as far as can be remembered was the Blue Fish Inn. There, any who visited the island could spend a cool pleasant night by the sea shore window listening to the rolling waves in the comfort of a warm bed. The Inn Keeper Milene was one of the first to join the Red Dagger ranks and thus lay a claim to the island that laid so desolate.
    Soon after, Buds constructed our island renowned Tavern the Soggy Barnicles. Here you could find anything from simple to exquisite to rare bottles of drink compliments of our sea-fairing merchants. Not only was the drink good, but the company as well (if you are a pirate enthusiast hehehe), and could find gossip on treasure, incoming shipments and other adventures if you had the ear or stomach for such a thing.
    Many other buildings on the island have come and gone but not many stay too long. This is probably due to the small availability of land. The houses on the island are small in comparison to the main lands and other islands and don't attract too many home owners. To us though its home, its haven, it's a port of our own. Hopefully with the arrival of more pirates these plots of land could be established for good and join the history of the Red Dagger Pirates and Port Baldmor.
    All claimed house property on the island has been and are still in the possession of the Red Daggers and we plan to keep our Port for many years to come no matter how many buildings rise or fall.
    The Port of Baldmor was made official on the 16th of January 2006 as a pirate-run town headed by Kerrs Holley. With gaining appraisal from the community things really started moving forward. Eventually us pirate became good friends with the PaxLair community and joined their umbrella of player ran towns. On the 28th of March the first paxlair-wide meeting was held on the beaches of Port Baldmor in the eve. Many good things have happened since then and will hopefully continue to do so as we push forward looking for new unclaimed waters to conquer.
    The town eventually left the paxlair alliance in late 2007 because the activity in the town and its guild began to falter. The town later went dormant in early 2008 following the leave of Kerrs Holley. Budswoman led the Red Dagger Pirates for a while, but eventually the guild went dormant as well. Now in 2012, Kerrs Holley has returned and is working on restoring the Red Dagger Pirates and Port Baldmor to their former glory days.
