The Northern Wastes

The Northern Wastes are one of the most dangerous and inhospitable regions anywhere on Corwyn.

The Wastes run north from the Sable Mountains up the northern tip of the Northern Peninsula, and down the eastern edge of the Alaghon Mountains along the east coast of the Northern Peninsula opposite the Sea of Adar.

These two mountain ranges separate the Northern Wastes from the realm of Marundi.

The only people who live in this harsh region are the scattered barbarian tribes of the H√ľornen, who eke out a harsh existence in a region with scarce natural resources.

The Wastes are also home to many fierce and terrible creatures, making the region extremely dangerous.

Creatures such as polar bears, Frost Giants, and the terrifying Remorhaz all hunt for human prey here. Worse still are the deadly Ice Wraiths, who wander the icy landscape, hunting living men.


The weather itself is an enemy to the inhabitants as well. Heavy snowfall continues nine months of the year and the arctic winds howl with such terrible ferocity that most of the time men can hardly walk upright, or see through the blinding snow and ice constantly thrown into the air.
