Hermanduri

The Hermanduri are the German barbarian tribe that populate the region surrounding Arboraeum. They are part of the client-state of Germania Superior, offering yearly tribute to Rome as a sign of allegiance. The Hermanduri are quite Romanized, enjoying a Roman quality of life and the protection of the XXIII Legion. Many of them have forsaken the Germanic culture to dress and act like Romans, though they are not considered equals by those they copy. They worship the Roman pantheon, giving the most attention to those gods that best resemble the gods they once worshiped. Since the Emperor has decreed it illegal for any Roman citizen to engage in druidic practices, the Hermanduri have likewise forbidden druids to practice their faith, and have driven off those who refused.

The Hermanduri are led by a chieftain, whom they style their King, Gorgonius.

The Hermanduri dwell in the region of modern-day Thuringia, Saxony and northern Bavaria.
