Re: Croatia and rest of balkan

Yeah, it seems I'll have to do just that. There is a tabletop gaming community in Zagreb but none of them plays Darklands. Maybe I'll throw in a free darklands rulebook to pique their interest.

I believe that you can bring into your muster individuals from a different realm, with regards to different kindreds, with the exception of Sell Swords, I believe you can only muster indivduals from kindreds that can be allied to your host kindred.
