The New Land is a short story based on the expansion of the Kingdom of Lucerne into the devestated lands of eastern France bordering Berne. House Arryn is central in the storyline, but many other powerful houses in the western half of Lucerne are also heavily present in the story. The name of this expanded into land, and the new province that Berne becomes the capital of is the province of Tristfall and maintains the most western border of the Kingdom of Lucerne.

The New Land has six POV Characters in the form of Sansa Starke, Aria Arryn, Evin Scorpian, Franklin Brent IV., Margot Robbet, and Paul Arryn of which Sansa Starke

The New Land begins with the arrival of William lovie into the city of Berne where he tasks House Arryn into the task of expanding westward into the lands north of Quel'Thalas. House Arryn would expand and found the town of Greengarden of which would instigate a large amount of others from the western half of Lucerne into following suit by also founding villages and castles into the area. The arrival of the large amount of humans would instigate the now dominent Orcs and Trollocs of the area into action which led to a series of brutal massacres of local human farmers which forced House Arryn to send in larger forces accompanied by Elves of Quel'Thalas in order to at least clear some of the areas of the infiltration. As the attacks from the Orcs continued to the west the river that housed the massive ruins of an old Bretonian bridge were destroyed leaving no place for the Orcs to cross in large numbers.
