The Saxons are one of the Cultures in Britain. Originally from Germany, they have invaded and settled in Britain where they are a constant thorn in the side of the other peoples there.
The Saxons say they arose when the ancient gods made the first people from trees. They walked with the gods and have interbred with the great and small among them. The gods made people to have allies against the giants and subterranean forces of Nature. They made different tribes of people so they would compete with each other to manifest the virtues that make humans great. Humans are beings of “courage, individuality, loyalty, and honor.” These virtues were distributed among the many peoples, thus creating the different tribes who settled in various regions of the continent. The actual Saxon tribes comprise a large group, but other significantly large groups include the Jutes and Angles; all three were driven from their ancestral homelands by the hostile Danes. In Britain they reasserted themselves by conquering and settling this land.
Some Saxons are vassals of Logres but the vast majority live in lands of their own and make war against the other British peoples; raiding, slaving, raping and trying to enforce their rule on the land.
Saxons have invaded and taken over several areas in Britain through conquest and settling. There are three major settlement areas, the north western coast, the Saxon Shore and the south-eastern shores.
The north-western shores were settled by Hengest’s relatives Octa and Eosa who settled named the lands Nohaut and Deira. The warrior-kings of Uther’s time were killed in the battle of St Albans but the former lands are run by Yffi, son of Eossa.
The eastern shores, also known as Saxon Shore, was invaded by the saxon King Æthelswith many years ago and they have steadily been settling the lands and raiding surrounding areas. Princemark fought her often to keep the Saxons at bay but since his death they have steadily begun spreading.
The south-eastern shores are the main settlement area of Saxons in Britain and home of many warriors and settlers. The first land, Kent, were given as a wedding gift at Rowena and Vortigerns marriage and was ruled by Rowenas father Hengest, who has since died and left the land to his son Æsc. Years later the Saxon warrior-king Ælle settled the nearby county of Regnensis by conquest, forming Suth Seaxe. When Vortigerns son Cerdic grew up, he claimed Hantonne by conquest. Saxons are settling every year and their numbers are growing, threatening civilization as we know it.
