Tribes of the Heartless Wastes
The threat of death lurks everywhere. Dmitri lost sight of his quarry in the gathering darkness and stumbled back from the carnage. Minutes ago¸ he and his comrades had been trudging homeward across the snowfield when¸ without warning¸ their guide plunged beneath the snow in a spray of slush and blood. By the time the ice borer attacks subsided¸ only Dmitri was left¸ himself beaten and bloodied from trying to save his friends. The warrior broke into a run¸ aiming for a small stand of pines. Winter wolves howled a greeting to the night and sniffed the cold air. As Dmitri neared the trees¸ he could feel the snow beneath his feet softening with each step.... Vosgaard remains one of the truly unconquered¸ untamed regions of Cerilia. In the frozen landscape of the heartless north¸ only the hardiest will survive - and few of those will thrive. Would-be rulers face the double threat of Vosgaard's climate and its denizens¸ each dangerous on its own and deadly in tandem¸ neither willing to be conquered. Even those who venture into the wastes only for adventure must step lightly. The snow-choked lands keep an icy grip on their secrets and their victims. Some say that only Belinik and Kriesha can hear the pleas of their faithful above the winter winds¸ leaving the region truly godforsaken.
