The League of Ostermark is a province in the Empire. It is often referred to as the Mark.
It borders Sylvania (part of the province of Stirland) to the south, Ostland to the west, the land of Kislev to the north and the World's Edge Mountains to the east. The capital of Ostermark is Bechafen which lies in the northern part. The ruined former capital Mordheim is in Southern Ostermark. It was destroyed by a warpstone comet, but a crusade of Empire Knights was led that razed it to the ground.
Ostermark is a mostly rural state, since, unlike its neighbours, its soil is fertile and ideal for agriculture. The low-tech level of the major industries of Ostermark often leads to its people being mocked in other states as simpletons. This is an unfair reputation however, as the people of the Mark are as stout and capable of those of any other province - if not more so, for Ostermark regularly sends troops to assist Kislev in its battles against northern barbarians. As a result its forces are perhaps more hardened to war against the Chaos barbarians than any others in the Empire. The state colours of Ostermark are Purple and Yellow or Purple and White
