Does the lore of Nentir Vale provide framework for use with 13th Age?

I never got into Nentir Vale with D&D with 4E. There are few PDF freebies that flesh out Nentir Vale, but I have not yet had the opportunity to read through them fully. Considering that 13th Age is a sort of natural evolution of 4E, it would be appropriate I think to use Nentir Vale with 13th Age. How well would that work?

There have been some threads on here about customizing icons for use with Nentir Vale. That's important to maintain the "points of light" feel. An Emperor isn't a good fit for a region that is sparsely populated and has no centralized government, for example. I'm on my phone, so I don't have a quick way to find those threads right now. If you can't find them with a site search or Google search, let me know, and I'll look tonight.

Also, I wrote a blog post on the topic. I still plan to write more about it eventually.

I'm back online, and found the thread I was thinking of: viewtopic.php?f=72&t=20358
