The Free Marches are a confederation of city-states located on the island of Wren.

The seven cities with any semblance of real power in the Marches are Dale, Lake-town, Erebor, Rivendell, Kirkwall, Starkhaven and Tantervale.


During the Articus Rebellion, many slaves did not wish to take part in the violent uprising. After the assault on Ath Velanis, many Human, Elven, Dwarven and Beastfolk slaves fled south the the large island of Wren. There, many founded independent city-states dependent on trade and protection with each other.
