|Period||547 - 556|
Order 3C is the name of a government policy enacted by the Drugnod Empire. The purpose of this policy was stop the nomadic ways of the tribes of the Northern Hordelands. The movement of tribes from one area to the next had long been the cause of seemingly perpetual fighting among the tribes of Zyrath. Part of this was a tradition of visiting the war shrines and other monuments left over from the Horgon Era. Most of these shrines are of crude make, yet the legends surrounding them tell of the time when the tribes were united as one battling the frost giants of Glangveif. The nomadic tradition of the tribes, especially amongst the gnolls, was also needed to allow nature to replenish itself from hunting and gaming.
Under guidance of the Shamanic Conclave, the Drugnod family, and Empress Gaufthaur Drugnod the First, a policy of territories was established for each tribe. Nomadic ways of the past were slowed and then after a decade they were outlawed. Territorial boundaries were made such that most cultural shrines and war monuments were often on the borders of tribes and declared neutral zones.
Order 3C is accredited of a period of enlightenment for the peoples of the Northern Hordelands. It made the Drugnod Empire prosperous and allowed them to form a large standing army. By 556, nearly all the tribes had established territories and were shakily following the whims of the empire.
