House of A Thousand Names
Frozen land where land is plentiful but difficult to live off of. Locals (dwarven majority) survive from trade and herds. nothing grows but small patches of grass fit only for the local animal herds.
Named for the strange appearance of ancient ruins and tropical flora and fauna found in the middle of a frozen tundra. One day a local from the dwarven village nearby discovered black smoke near a well worn trade route. upon investigating found an area teeming with wild creatures not native to the surrounding area. however, when investigating further the local was driven away by an uncontrollable urge to run away. he was discovered 13 miles away mumbling in a language unheard of. every other would be explorer has suffered the same fate. always being discovered 13 miles west of the site.
