A Turning Wheel
Barony of Scholar's Walk
This barony, currently ruled by Thierry Harcourt ap Fiona covers Cambridge and Somerville. Less densely populated than its neighbors south of the river, it is a wealthy center of progressive thought and a home for much of the creative community in the area: as such it is a popular living spot for many kithain. MIT, Harvard (and its museums)sit in the midst of a huge local food and art scene, independent theaters and historical homes.
The abundance of resources allows for a generally calm populace that needs little management as Scholar’s Walk seems blissfully apart from many of the problems that occur across the river. Thierry takes full advantage of this to allow his seneschal Thorndike to handle much of the administration of the realm while he gads off to tourneys and parties, which suits his “subjects” just fine – the barony has become a freer and wilder place of late.
