Vondheide is a northern country on the continent of Edelenn. It has enjoyed relative peace during much of the Age of Discord, due in large part to the mountainous borders that insulate it from surrounding countries. In spite of all this landward protection, Vondheide's northern areas trend toward flatness as they approach the sea, leaving the country susceptible to raids from that direction; both Rindis and Trand have taken advantage of this easier approach throughout the years.
The lack of external pressure has allowed Vondheide to focus its attention on trying to gain a narrow corridor of access to the southern Khali Jimaat (Bay of Skulls). Success here would make for much easier maritime trade routes and greatly extend the country's ability to influence events along the eastern seaboard.
Vondheide culture and feel is based on Germany.
