[[Northtale]] is one of the 50 baronies of [[Winn]], located on the isle of [[Caranntale]], in the [[Carann]] national region. As of the fusion of [[Formland]] and [[Pontsoar]] into [[Oldcross]] in 1999, it is the smallest barony, excepting [[Saint Almath]], which is only technically a barony. It has the lowest population of all baronies, the capital of [[Saint Peter]] only has a population of about 20,000. The barony borders [[Southtale]] in the southwest, and has a ferry connection with [[Baymund]] in the north.
+
[[Northtale]] is one of the 44 electoral lordships that make up [[Winn]]. It is, along with the lordships of [[Carann (Lordship)|Carann]], [[Farm (Lordship)|Farm]], and [[Caranntale and Lycer]] one of the lordships that make up the barony of [[Warren]]. Northtale is the most influential of these four, carrying 7 seats in parliament. Northtale has historically swung between Blue and Green, but in recent years seems to have settled on Blue, usually voting majority [[POLL (Winn)|POLL]]. The lordship is oddly disjointed, as it contains the entire western exclave of the barony of Warren, as well as a thin strip of the other mainland portion of the barony, containing the barony capital of [[Waterby]].
 
 
==Geography==
 
Almost the entire barony is flat, with a small hill range on the northwestern end. A nature reserve is located on the southern part of the barony, with the majority of population living along the northern coast. The Fynnster Bay, splitting off from the main bay on the island, the [[Uppic Bay]], is the only avenue along which the southern end of the barony's population lives.  
 
 
 
==History==
 
Northtale in its current state has existed for a long time already, as early as 1500. The island of [[Caranntale]] was divided into a northern and a southern section by its Ingerish colonizers. This division has remained since then, and the only change to the borders of these baronies since then has been the addition of [[Kinning]] and [[Tayleethe]] to [[Southtale]].
 
 
 
==Government==
 
===Municipalities===
 
Northtale is divided into three municipalities, the lowest number of any barony.

==Demographics==
 
The largest place is [[Saint Peter]], followed by [[Gun's Wind]]. The third largest place is [[Broadaime]], which is only 8000 people. Other places are [[Huechurch]], [[Fynnster]] and [[Gunn]].
 
 
 
== Transportation ==
 
=== Road Transport ===
 
The [[N-52]] highwayroad goes from [[Innchore]] to [[Gun's Wind]], connecting the whole of the barony to the highway network. Additionally, smaller roads such as the [[R-503]] between [[Fynnster]] and [[Broadaime]], connect other places in the barony.
 
 
 
===Rail Transport===
 
A single railway travels through the barony, known as the [[Northtale Branch]], operated by [[Southern Winn Railways]]. It splits off from the mainline, [[Port Yearstone]] to [[Tripolis]] at [[Innchore Station|Innchore]], and within Northtale stops at [[Saint Peter South Station|Saint Peter South]], [[Saint Peter Station|Saint Peter]], [[Broadaime Station|Broadaime]], and terminates at [[Gun's Wind Station|Gun's Wind]].
 
 
 
==Tourism==
 
 
 
The [[Northbay National Park]] pulls a fair amount of visitors to the barony, but [[Faeland Gunswind]] and the accompanying resort and country club are the barony's main source of tourism.
