Rondane is way up north, where habitable lands go pale and bow to the frozen taiga plateau. Ever-harassing winds leech all body warmth. Vast frozen tundras and ancient mountain ridges, unbeatable to all except the glaciers which ponderously grind everything into gravel.
Not even the orcs hang around for long up here, for this is the land of trolls. Not the sinewy, lanky swamp trolls. Nay, in Rondane dwells an older troll breed, the Jotuns. And at twilight, Huldrefolk can be seen scampering from the shelter of a willow bush to the entrance of a den underneath a lichen-clad boulder.

Huge, carnivorous wyrms forged of hatred and laced in malice. Stories whispered by the fireplace at night tell of the mighty Linnorms, their power matching that of the strongest dragons.
