The land of Myrriddin is a desolate, frozen wilderness that is bordered by the Thornhelm Mountains to the west, and The Sea of Istas to the north, south, and east. It is home to the barbarian tribes who are feared across Erdael, as well as the mighty warrior race known as the ferals.

It is a harsh and unforgiving climate, where even everyday survival can be a challenge. The ground remains frozen nearly year-round, and hungry predators stalk prey both day and night. It is a place where only the strong survive, and weakness is punishable by death. It is little wonder that the humans of this region have perfected the arts of warfare and raiding, because their survival depends upon “importing” fresh commodities from the fertile southern regions of Cambria.
