Barbarians refers to any number of the various human societies that exist beyond the borders of the civilized lands. They live outside of the kingdoms, or in such remote parts that the laws of civilization do not apply to them. Barbarians are generally illiterate and tribal in nature, though there is such a variety of them no specific information can be given. There are, for instance, reported 'hordes' of barbarians to the east of the Barony of Kain, while small bands of them live to the west of the Duchy of Dofngarth.

There are of course rumours of 'civilized' peoples living beyond the Kingdoms, but the world is a large and relatively unknown place, so anything is possible.
