Races: difference between ascendency and Northmen

So what will be the difference between choosing ascendency and Northmen or the children

After studying the small parchment thing we where shown during the kick starter it said something that the Northmen prefer to create smaller settlements and trust axes and compasses.

Does this mean the nords will have a unique axe wielding unit perhaps? Maybe some sort of special minimap?

The children or whatever their name was. Say that they have a large empire meaning more immigrants perhaps? One thing I defiantly remember was he comment on there affinity for trading. Does this mean discounts on items?
