The Ice Mountains tower over the northern part of the western continent. Immense and foreboding peaks, shrouded throughout the year by low-laden clouds hang over the landscape. Within their vastness, dwell the Dragons Of Darksmoke, Gnolls, Dwarves, Ice Trolls and many other races and creatures. The Dwarves are a sturdy and industrious race, that live longer than Humans. Generally friendly and outgoing, they enjoy carousing and decorating their clothes, with bright pieces of cloth and metal. On the other hand, the carnivorous Ice Trolls, lead by Icer, attack anything in their path, with their clawed hands and feet, but fear the Dwarves. The Intelligent, but evil Gnolls, live in the old, used up Dwarf Mines. Their bear wolf-like features and sport armor and weapons, although they tend to be lazy and try to avoid fighting whenever possible. The most prominent race in the Ice Mountains, is the Dragons Of Darksmoke.
