The Borderlands were once a semi-civilized frontier land of rival Tuomi tribes. During the height of the Anari Empire, the region served as a frontier buffer zone, nominally controlled by Aspiria though labelled as Anari territory on maps. Vacated during the Blizzard War, settlers came back to grab land when the Hellfrost horde withdrew, constructing new settlements rather than rebuilding the devastated ruins.
No one people dominate the region, which has become a melting pot of different races and cultures thanks to disasters such as the Anari invasion, the rise of the Liche-Priest, and the Blizzard War. Although the Tuomi are the majority, the margin is very slim. Trade is brisk, especially in the east, where the trade road from the Lakelands to Aspiria cuts through the region. Due to the trade road, many bands of bandits prowl the eastern reaches.
