World of Gaus
A sparsely populated region in the northeast, Olstrom is a land of secrets and silence. A cold place, Olstrom enjoys year round rains and snows over its flat wet landscape — it is said that the sun never shines on the grey land of Olstrom. Rocky hills and frozen rivers compose most of the north, while the in south is naught but wet windy moors as far as the eye can see.
Only two major settlements are found in Olstrom: the city of Reinmere on the warmer southern coasts, homeland of the Rain Clan (descendants of the Old Kingdom Sturnheim) , and Ehnahr in the north, homeland of the mysterious Ankhew. The remainder of the region belongs to small shepherd communes, raiders and dire beasts.
Networks of caves are found in the hills to the north, but few outside of the native Ankhew have dared to mine them. Treacherous and dangerous, the caves are thought to be haunted by spirits of frost and foul demons, guarding things long forgotten.
