Niflheim Glacier is Thyra’s southernmost polar region. It is the most dangerous and uninhabitable realm of the world. Plains of ice, chasms and treacherously windless environment are covered by an unnaturally cold layer of mist. As such, only the most daring explorers have ever set one foot upon it. And only by wearing a specialized protective gear, do they have any hope of surviving it. Random caves offer a seeming amount of protection, but also risk an exposure to another kind of danger.
Niflheim Glacier is not only lethal by its environment. Its local fauna and those that have learned to survive on the nature’s conditions, also present a danger. The largest of these predators is the colossal gryphon, which eats everything in its sight. The mysterious realm is apt in spreading various legends, such as feral canine tribes ja mythical “Guardians” alike.
