The North

Considered by many to be the harshest and most difficult region of Corwyn in which to reside, the lands of the North are fraught with peril, intrigue, harsh temperatures, and strange creatures. The region known as the North consists of three distinct geographic regions: the Icelands, the Khorlann Steppes, and the Northern Wastes. Of the three, the Icelands are the most well-known and populated, and the Northern Wastes the least. These three territories share more than just cold temperatures. The people of all three regions have overcome violent histories and endured many hardships to eek out a meager existence with few natural resources and little wealth. Perhaps it is despondency caused by the cold, but the prevailing alignments of the folk in these regions tend toward evil, with little sympathy toward outsiders. Few outsiders travel here, and even fewer return.
