Excerpt from the World of the Wilderlands
Immediately to the north of the Wilderlands and south of the Great Escarpment is Valonaria, the domain of the Avalonians and their savage Valonar cousins. The great northern city-states of Val-Torsh, Valfodthr, Valamala, Valoria, and Valmidthra, each the equal of Valon itself, are known only in legend to the southern peoples. The savage lands between the fiefdoms of the Avalonian city-states are home to various tribes of semi-nomadic Valonar, as is the Lower Ukulan Sea below Sûrya Falls. The Ice Temple of Aram Kor sits atop a glacier in the mountains of a vast island between the eastern and western arms of the falls. The lands north of the Great Escarpment, including the Upper Ukulan Sea and the lands and glacier between it and the Frigid Ocean, are the domain of the Alvar, or Blue Elves, a tall, mighty sea and ice-faring people. Their cities in the Mammoth Mountains are each built as fortresses, with walls of vast stones mortared in the blood of their enemies. To the east stands the long series of hills and crags known as the Saber-Tooth Hills, home to giant creatures of all kinds; even the trolls of the region are huge, brethren to giants, and many-headed, each head filled with great sharp saber-like teeth. White dragons, snow beasts, and yeti live in the icy crags, while volcanoes are home to red dragons and stranger fauna.
