The Northern Reaches
The Northern-most region of Aktovar, this land is mountainous, cold and unforgiving. Home to the Dwarves, who dwell deep in the mountains, and the Jannistock, tall blonde humans who dwell in the snowy plains and hills, this land does have some benefits. Rich in rare metals, hard stone, and a mriad of exotic pelts, the people of the Northern Reaches have long traded with other races and these items are often in demand. It is said that a blade made by the Dwarves of the Northern Reaches is finer than any other non-magical blade in the continent. The Northern Reaches is not without peril however. Huge animals stalk the plains and mountains of the area, and both predator and herbivore alike are well adapted to the harsh conditions as well as defending themselves from other massive beasts. The Jannistock have many techniques for hunting these ferocious animals, but even they often lose men in the process. So if you venture into the Northern Reaches, be wary adventurer!
