North Gate is a mountainous and rough region of the Marcher Kingdoms. North Gate derives its name from the days before Arithai was founded and North Gate acted as the northernmost vestige of civilization in the Marcher Kingdoms. North Gate’s tall mountains keep it safe from barbarian raids to the north, but they also prevent it from having lush farmland. As a result North Gate is something of a backwater with a sparse population and providing little to the Marcher Kingdoms aside from a meagre tax. Duke Raynard of North Gate spends most of his time away from his lands, instead preferring the comfort and luxury of the court of the High King.
