North Eidyn is a region of Eidyn. It is bordered by Jotun, Vedfolnir, Teleios, Frozen Vale and East Teleios. An ice desert similar to Shuang, North Eidyn is one of the harshest regions to live in. Without the help of an Aard'Vorn, North Eidyn is mostly inhospitable. The only part of the region that can be settled is an area along the mountains called the Northern Reaches.
North Eidyn is an ice desert, and as a result has remarkably similar features like Shuang. However, it is a much harsher environment. Snowstorms are relentless and the cold is a constant danger, with only short summers making any headway to warm the region. The region is so inhospitable that the wildlife here have become almost alien to Eidyn in order to survive. Glaciers and large dunes of granular ice also dot the region.
Points of interest
A large cliff and cave system that runs down dozens of mountains near the Jotun border, the Reaches are the only hospitable place in North Eidyn due to the shelter the cliffs and caves provide. Many of the caves and cliffs are inhabited by predators, but the predators provide large sums of food and thick skin to repair homes and clothes.
Fissure of Ymir
A large frozen fissure in the middle of North Eidyn, the Fissure of Ymir is one of the most dangerous locations in all of Eidyn. With steep, frozen cliffs and ice constantly falling and breaking, it is a place no one would wish to go. However, adventurers have time and time again gone there due to a legend that the Aard'Vorn of North Eidyn, the Icelance, resides there. Many countries have also tried to find it so that they could turn North Eidyn into a prosperous area ripe for colonizing. The truth is that the myth is actually correct, the Icelance is trapped in a small glacier at the bottom of the fissure. The dangerous part is that a dragon named Mezzobrand and his kobold followers have claimed the area as their own. The dragon is intolerant of any outsiders and uses both his minions and the power of the Icelance to kill anyone who tries to reach his lair.
