Balduvian barbarians were mainly hunters, but kept a few more permanent settlements in the area. They were rivals of Kjeldor for some time, but allied with the forces of their enemies to battle against Lim-Dûl. With the end of the Ice Age, many of the beasts that the barbarians hunted died out, and the land became suitable for crops. This marked a change in Balduvian lifestyles and further cemented their alliance with the Kjeldorans. Together they formed the nation of New Argive.
