The Sea of Snow draws its name from the bitter cold snow covering everything. Nobody knows what lies beneath it or even how far it is to the ground. When the mountain pass from the Harf Trading Post reaches the Plateau, one catches the sight of a gruesome landscape. For aeons towering skeletons have been a part of this environment, which according to the legend are bones of giant dragons from mystical prehistory. Some believe that these are mere stones that only look like bones. Others proclaim them to be demon bones from the “World of the void”. For those who know all the stories, the skeletons eradiate an especially mysterious aura. The region actually has a reputation of being absolutely unfit for any kind of human activity. This reputation stems not only from the climatic conditions, but also from the fact that nearby lies Winter Night Valley, where Ice Fairies appear all too frequently waiting to rob the souls of reckless intruders. Cyclopes also roam the area looking for something to eat. But since artifacts from ancient cultures were discovered in the nearby Tower of Wailing Winds, people have begun to wonder if the Sea of Snow had always been such a hostile place or if humans had once lived there.
