    Frost Field



    1 Frost Fang: The icy mountains of Frost Fang are home to the Frostwolves. The Frostwolves are territorial and no Man, Beast, or Demon have trespassed in their lands and survived. The wolf god Fenrir slumbers in this mountain range. (the item frost wolfs skull)

    2 Grimms Cross: With the Frost Fang mountains to the south and freezing and stormy waters to the north Grimms crossing is the only path the demons can take into the western frost fields. (the map grimms crossing)

    3 Horfot Academy: A stone academy where humans study magic and technology. Famous for its massive libraries containing ancient tomes and the invention of Frost Field plate. (frost field plate)

    4 Blackwal: Blackwal was a fertile grass lands ruled over by baron Salforis who was tasked with providing enough crops to feed the legion of man. With the opening of the scar blackwal was "lost" and now it produces a steady crop of the undead for the hellbournes armies. (Lord Salforis and gravekeeper)

    5 Frost Fields: A cold, rocky and flat land. There is almost always a layer of frost on the ground and few to no trees.

    6 Tundra: A more heavily forested and mountainous region then the frost fields. There is a norse style human settlement in the northern mountains of the tundra. They are a off shot of the savage tribe and have been isolated from the human beast war. The southern tundra mountains near caldavar are home to a tribe of white apes who are closely connected to the beast horde.

    7 Caldavar: The edge of the caldavar forest.

    8 The Frozen Edge: not much is know about the frozen edge. This area is covered in glaciers.

    Participating also in this event.

    Here is my entry:

    Excerpts from the Papers of a Scholar




    I'd like to note and commend on those who participate in this contest and took time to view and post within the Lore Forums.
    Every story, every discussion and every form of lore that comes from those interested are invaluable to the growth of Newerth's enigmatic lore.

    You should make a separate thread for it.

    I'm sure we'd all be a lot more interested in this if we had something like 300 gold coins as a reward or something, haha. As of right now I just went "meh"
