Forever Winterís Vale

Brief Overview

Situated deep within the Caucavic Mountains, this deep valley is in an almost constant state of winter. Snow is on the ground for at least nine of the twelve months. The weather, on the other hand, is very mild in contrast to other areas with this much snowfall. The temperature ranges from -15 degrees Celsius on itís coldest days and on the warmest days it can reach up to 10 or 11 degrees Celsius. The valley is cloaked with a thick forest of evergreens. These trees seem to thrive and grow tremendously tall.

on the valley floor, a soft flowing, meandering stream, called the Great Mirrored River, gently makes itís way towards the north-east. The flood plain of the river has winter grass and bushes growing in great abundance. The river is hardly ever frozen over although in the calmer waters, a thick sheet of ice can begin to form in the colder seasons. The river flows for the length of the valley where it plummets into a gigantic waterfall. This mysterious water fall is called the Frozen Falls by the locals. Following the river the other direction, the source of the river can be found. The valley begins to turn into a wide plain of rocky deposits. The river makes itís way into a network of tunnels found inside of a colossal glacier.

The valley is home to a number of different groups of people. Most are friendly and peaceful people. They are mostly hunters and gatherers but are not nomadic in any way. They all have established settlements in or around the valley.
