The March of the Old Gods
The Frozen North
The Frozen North is a region that only the foolish and suicidal dare to tread. Only the defenders at Caer Brannog, The Dwarves at Coldcross Station, and the men of Galhatyr, have managed to persist for more than a few days, and that is only because of their sheer will to survive in this inhospitable land. Many of the final battles of the Last Great Dragon Purge occurred in the North, simply because the dragons had nowhere else to turn.
Many tribes of ferocious orcs, goblins, gnolls, Frost Giants, and ogres call the wastes home, and seem to thrive in it, as there is nobody to control their raids.
