The Brelish have historically been a target of clan raiding. The citizens of Breland consider clansfolk as dangerous hillfolk who are barely civilized.
Breland controls Cragwar, the closest major city, having occupied it at the time open hostilities ended. Cragwar maintains trading routes into the eastern and southern Blackcaps, which still have active mines, but as the northern mines are closed, there is little trade into clan territory.
Since the end of the Last War, there has been a strong military presence in Cragwar, with no enemy armies to face, so no successful raids have been mounted into the Cragwar countryside.
