Jotunheim is one of the Nine Realms of Yggdrassil created by the Seidhr, a Nordic group of dreamwalking seers. Like the name of this world suggests, Jotunheim is home to the Jotuns.

Geography

Jotunheim consists of tall icy peaks with taigas and lakes at the base. It is mostly sprawling open wilderness, but the landscape is deceptively beautiful. The native Jotun are hostile to outsiders, and the Rupture lead to the introduction of numerous monsters including those that are non-native.
