Northern Wastes

The Northern Wastes are the most dangerous and inhospitable geographic region of Corwyn.

As part of the North; the Wastes are located on the northernmost region of the Northern Peninsula. The Wastes stretch north from the Sable and Alaghon Mountains, until they reach the frigid coast of the Nürn Myr.

Because of the extremely harsh climate conditions, the Northern Wastes are very scarcely populated. The only people who live here are the scattered Hüornen tribes, who eke out a meager existence using the scarce natural resources available.

The Wastes are also home to many fierce and terrible creatures, making the region extremely dangerous. These creatures include polar bears, Frost Giants, and the terrifying Remorhaz, all of which hunt for human prey. Worse still are the terrifying Ice Wraiths, who wander the icy landscape, thirsting for the blood of living men.

Here, the weather itself is an enemy to its inhabitants. The entire region is covered in heavy snowfall for nine months of the year and the arctic winds howl with such terrible ferocity that men cannot walk upright, or even see through the blinding snow and ice constantly thrown into the air.

The Northern Wastes is home to the famous Deeprift Crevasse, and its "Three Sisters."
