Honestly, in the original stories, they are only mentioned in passing. In the Chaosium book, it's portrayed as possibly the last place where humanity has survived. Everyone is insane, but follows a code of behavior enforced by societal norms. It's been a long time since I read it, so I might not be remembering it correctly.

In a couple of Lovecraft's stories, he references The Cruel Empire of Tsan-Chan which is to come on Earth in the year 5,000. Specifically, the Empire is mentioned in The Shadow Out of Time, and Beyond the Wall of Sleep.
In 2010, Chaosium published a short book detailing what they think it might be like.(It's hard to find now.)

I just think it would be a cool place for a race of humans on Hyperborea to hail from.

What is the purpose of Druids needing to fight other Druids to gain the highest levels? I know it was ported over from D&D, but does anyone actually do it?
