One wonders what drives a man or woman to venture into the frozen north to live. Shivering temperatures, harsh weather, unspeakable creatures, yet some call it home. Only the bravest of adventurers make their way to this region, most to set foot upon Elanthia's tallest mountain, known as the top of the world. Others to go beyond even that, testing their limits to the very end of the realm. What lies beyond? Only those that have returned can speak of it and you will often find them here.
