The Fremennik Province is found north of Kandarin, and is ruled by the Fremenniks and Barbarians. There are also islands north and east of the province, which are considered to be a part of it. This province, especially with the inclusion of its islands, bears a marked resemblance to the Baltic region. The Batlic region had a large population of Norse in the Viking Age, however the culture originates in Scandinavia. It is unknown if the Fremennik Province is actually a region. Many have claimed that Jagex confirmed the province to be a region of Gielinor. However, on the world map the text is coloured white instead of gold, meaning it should not be a region. Also, when using the fairy ring transport system, the fairy ring log book lists Fremennik destinations as part of Kandarin. This place is sometimes used mostly as a training area as there is a large amount of inhabitants of Rock Crabs on the shores for lower level members to train on.

Inhabitants

The Fremennik Province is noted for being almost entirely ruled solely by one group of people, the barbarians (or Fremenniks, as they call themselves). Over the years, groups of Fremenniks have left the many body in Rellekka and created many settlements. However, the separate tribes still interact with each other largely through trade. The exception to this is the "outerlanders", as they are called by the Fremenniks. The outerlanders consist of the rest of the humans on RuneScape. Since all humans were once Fremenniks, the Fremennik Province is actually the birthplace of mankind.

The only other significant race that has managed to survive within the Fremennik Province are the dwarves, who have lived in the province for nearly as long as the Fremenniks. During the God Wars, the dwarves hid themselves in the Fremennik Province, after nearly being wiped out. They created a large city named Keldagrim under the mountains east of the Fremennik Province, and have thrived there ever since.

There are several other races that have made their homes in the Fremennik Province, but they are few, and their settlements are very small. The trolls, for instance, live partially in the area, and wage war against the Fremenniks at every opportunity. There is also a group of intelligent penguins that have established an outpost on the iceberg north of Rellekka, as discovered in the Cold War quest.

It appears that many of the non-player characters located here are a reference to many famous Vikings of Norwegian, Swedish, Scottish, and Finnish folklore.

Climate

The Fremennik Provinces's climate is known for being very harsh. In Rellekka and the surrounding area, the wind carries in bitterly cold air from the Lunar Sea. The wind can become so strong, in fact, that the trees in the area are known to be permanently bent in one direction.

Further north, the climate becomes even colder. Snow is known to fall almost year-round, and on some islands, such as Miscellania and Etceteria, the wind becomes so strong that the residents are forced to take shelter in the towns' castles and underground.

Even farther north are the ice-lands of Acheron. Little is known of these lands, although they are said to be so inhospitable that few can survive long there. Although players cannot yet visit them, it is believed they will have an effect similar to the Kharidian Desert.

Economics

The Fremenniks have mastered many skills, although most refuse to use magic. Their main industries include things such as fishing, hunting, and farming. Like the Fremenniks themselves, the area's industry depends largely on location.

The areas economy is largely fueled by the dwarves of Keldagrim, whose technology far surpasses that of the Fremenniks. Keldagrim is known to produce many metal items which are then traded with the Fremenniks.

Amongst players, the Fremennik Province is fairly popular, although it is not as crowded as areas such as Misthalin and Asgarnia. The diversity of the areas resources has made it a popular area to get raw resources.

Trivia

  • The Fairy ring network lists codes DKS as 'Kandarin: Snowy Hunter Area' and AJR as 'Kandarin: Slayer cave south-east of Rellekka'. Both locations are in the Fremennik Province, which is commonly believed to be an country independent of Kandarin. (Jagex's Game Guide, for example, lists the Fremennik Province and Kandarin separately when covering the human race and human lands.[[1]] It is not known if they Fairy ring listings are a mistake, if the province was once part of olden Kandarin before the Fremennik settled there, or if modern Kandarin claims sovereignty over the province.
