The Depths of Dullahan's Deep
This large, untamed expanse of land lies north of Riddari and encompasses virtually all of the territory in that region from the Rigsholm Mountains to the Blacksilia Sea, and as far north as the Arkhosian Forest. Ruins that lie scattered about this region prove it was once part of the southernmost edge of the Arkhosia Empire. While not an arctic environment, the climate here stays relatively cold year round, and is famous for its long hard winters. Small forests, woodlands, and lakes dot the region in a seemingly random pattern, with a number of rivers flowing from its mountainous western frontier down into the relative flat lands of the east. While no true political divisions exist in Norlund, most of the barbaric Human tribes of this area live on the western side of the Blak Aufeis River, while the eastern portion is home to innumerable tribes of savage Dragonborn and Orcs. Most animals, and creatures, that can live in Cold or Temperate climates may be found here.
