The "barbarian" island of Rainos is a land inhabited by dozens of semi-independent clans, all of which are awesome. It split from Mythron after centuries of abuse, and ever since the two peoples have been at each other's throats. Go wild when making your character- there is no dress code over here.

More than two centuries ago, the armies of Mythron conquered the less-developed island of Rainos when the last local king surrendered at Hadran. The victors seized the territory with an iron fist, establishing their own nobility as the dominant landholders and virtually enslaving the native population, reducing the once-free Rainosians to serfs. Yet time proved that the oppressors could not crush the spirit of the island; even Mythronian overlords began to adopt the local customs. Twenty years ago, with Mythron at its weakest, the newly-appointed Duke of Rainos gathered the armies of the clans in open rebellion. His forces met the knights of the enemy at the Battle of Unbinding, where King Mythron himself was slain. Free at last, the clan chiefs crowned the duke King Bartok I of Rainos... and promptly forgot about him. Now, loosely-bound clans hold their own against attempts to take back the island and even manage to considerably harm their enemies, the King waits restlessly in his castle, and heroes set out for adventure.
Rainos is a diverse territory, even more so than the pirates or outlaws. Each clan has its own style, and independent heroes do whatever is best for them. There are even a few remnants of the old Mythronian nobility who defected to join Bartok's cause but kept their native culture. Therefore your Rainosian hero can use tribal equipment or a knight's extensive armory; travel alone, with a lance of armsmen, with a handful of good friends, with a war band, or even at the head of a vast army; and, again, can dress however he or she pleases.
