Realms of the Forsaken Orb
Hailing from the north, in the region of Skalavik, the mountain clans are roving, nomadic tribespeople and mostly hunter-gatherers. Each clan has its own cultures, traditions, and laws. The humans of the mountain clans are but distant relatives of the humans in the rest of Faeloria. They believe they are descendents of the First Forest, which gave birth to their kind from the trees.
Sometimes enemies, sometimes allies, are the Frost Giant clans of the north. Possibly the oldest native race of Faeloria, the frost giant goliaths are primal beings who are strange and mysterious even to the humans, and eladrin. While the other races were created by gods, the frost giants existed even before the gods came to Argesa and it is believed they were created by the primordial titans who shaped the planet to be guardians of the mountains.
