To the Fruztii who dwell there it is known as Rhizia. To all others, it is known simply as the Land of the Frost Barbarians. They, along with their distant cousins, the Snow Barbarians and the Ice Barbarians, are among the few remaining pockets of pure Suloise on eastern Oerik, otherwise known as the Flanaess. But they are very unlike the Suel of the Scarlet Brotherhood, or those who dwell in the jungles even further to the south, for theirs is a mountainous land of harsh winters and bitter cold.
With the Fruztii being the weakest of the three barbarian nations, and technically vassals of the powerful Schnai, or Snow Barbarians, they chafe at their subservience and resent the overlordship of their eastern cousins. But a cold north wind issues from the mountains, heralding a time for a change. And from the midst of the Frost Barbarian’s homeland, six have emerged who may well prove to be the harbingers of this change. All they need now is a quest worthy of their potential – one that will shake the foundations of this land to its core, and forever after leave its mark in the history of the Flanaess.
