Arrived in the sleepy Village of Oregon, Wisconsin yesterday. Fantastic looking product! (I've been running something from the electronic version for a couple of months now)

Does the name Nordland have a sort of joke with the Steve Jackson Games term fnord?

No, it's just "northland" but in bad Icelandic.

"Norđlönd" put into Google Translate comes back in English as "Nordic Countries."

The original name for the entire country in my Dragon Heresy setting was Torengar, which doesn't mean anything and has no nordic language roots at all. It was just a cool-sounding set of syllables.

I renamed it as "Nordlond" (without the funky characters for speed) when I made it more generic for the DFRPG so that folks could say "well, Nordlond just means 'the north lands,' but in MY world, the locals call it BDoglond or Bobland or whatever."

'Nord' is short for 'Nordic' and shows up quite frequently among names in nordic cultures.

See also, Nordland.

I think b-dog may be on to something.

Their are strange words for geological features in Scandanavia, namely 'fjords.'

That initial double consonant beginning with an 'f' fits the 'fnord' pattern very well.

Maybe Fnordland is kind of like the upside-down in Doug's realm.

The weird thing about the name Nordland is that not only is the initial 'F' silent, it's also invisible.
