Brigard Fact #32

Although no one in Brigard would ever dream of sailing on the ocean, there are a number of towns with the word ‘harbor’ in their name. This peculiar naming convention comes from the Skageran culture, which occupied what is now the northern part of Brigard. The Skagerans were an especially brave group and would travel along the coast in long, narrow boats. Those towns located on parts of the coast known to be safe from the Leviathan’s influence were called ‘Hemenskagar’, meaning literally ‘safe coast’ or ‘harbor’. Even after the Brigardine Conquest, those towns formerly of the Skageran kingdom kept their original names, though the meaning fell into disuse.
