Old Kingdom Wiki

The Southerlings are a displaced people who attempt to settle in Ancelstierre and then the Old Kingdom when their homeland is devastated by war. However, this war is a result of Hedge's plan to free Orannis, and many of the Southerlings end up being killed and used as Dead Hands to excavate the Lightning Trap.

During Goldenhand, it is noted that Prince Sameth is attempting to find lands for the Southerlings. However, it is noted that because the Southerlings don't believe in magic, the process of rehousing is extremely difficult.
