This page is for the island of Holm in Asulon. You can redirect to the Consulary Republic of Holm here.

The island nation of Holm was known for its harsh climate, the cold weather keeping most away from it's shores. It was not easily accessible land, and instead relied on ships to bring in people and trade goods. Coming unprepared for the wrath of the cold was dangerous for all. Holm lay to the east of Malinor on a island that was mostly secluded from the world in Asulon. The water surrounding it was covered in ice, causing transportation there to be hard and tiresome. The boats that ferried citizens back and forth across the waters were specially built to break the ice. Inside the walled city of the capital rested many trees and plants, most unique to the conditions of Holm. The land itself looked abandoned, seeming to increase the beauty of the place. The citizens preferred to spend their time inside their homes with their families and friends.

Economy

Holm was a trade nation, and dealt in many different wares. They were one of the few nations with an obsidian mine, and it became a main export. Holm's value did not lie above the ground, but rather below. Even after the Dwarves left the island was still found to be rich in ores.
