On 6 Bloom 101, King Hlimi, ruler of the Hofthorm Monarchy died. With no clear line of succession, the kingdom was split up among his five sons, the Princes of Hlimi.
Hlimi Kingdoms is a grouping name for the petty states home to Borngring, the highlands of Steirgar and the dark reaches beneath. Most people of these kingdoms are a proud people, fond of the legendary tales of fire giant heroes of the time of the Hofthorm Monarchy all the way back the legions that served under Surtur in the Creation War. In more recent times, other heroes, non fire-giants, have entered the taverns of ancient halls and told in the Great Bathhouses of Yrngreirn.
In the Cinazan Front, the fire giant kingdoms of Thjollod and Xornsnous joined the Flux Pact, making war on their long-time enemies of the Khazarkar Empire.
