“You want to know who the Forsworn are? We are the people who must pillage our own land. Burn our own ground. We are the scourge of the Nords. The axe that falls in the dark. The scream before the gods claim your soul. We are the true sons and daughters of the Reach. The spirits and hags have lived here from the beginning, and they are on our side. Go back. Go back and tell your Empire that we will have our own kingdom again. And on that day, we will be the ones burying your dead in a land that is no longer yours.”
So who are the Forsworn? Are they simple brigands and bandits? Are they deposed tribesmen wishing only to win back their ancestral territory? Decide for yourself. We learn most everything there is to know about the Witchmen, Reachmen, Forsworn (whatever you want to call them).
