A Freehold is an independent society of Fae found within the land of Allutheria.
After the Fae were banished to Allutheria following their defeat by the Gods in the Great War, many of the lesser Fae gathered around the more powerful and charismatic of their kind. These powerful and charismatic Fae formed what would later come to be known as the Faery Courts of Allutheria.
However, some of the Fae were not so easily swayed by the influence of others and instead set out in small groups to create independent communities in which most of the residents were treated equally or by a set of laws decided upon by the populous.
There are many, many Freeholds in Allutheria. Freehold out number Courts in Allutheria by a vast margin, but the Freehold's independent lifestyle also leaves them weak. They do not have the strength, might, or numbers that many of the more powerful Courts of Allutheria can claim, and they typically do not have agreements with other Freeholds to provide support in times of persecution. This has made many Freeholds vulnerable, a vulnerability that some like the Amazons exploit for their won personal gain.
