Post Greyhawk Wars: 585 CY
Land of Black Ice
The few travelers who have ventured north of the Burneal Forest tell an astonishing tale of this land: instead of the stark, white snow and translucent blue-white ice one would expect here, there is an endless landscape of blue-black ice topped only here and there by normal snowfall. Strange arctic monsters roam these fields of ebony ice. Stranger still, the very few who have braved these hazards tell of a warmer land beyond the ice where the sun never sets and jungles abound!
Further, it is said that between the Land of Black Ice and Blackmoor is a "City of the Gods: a place where iron buildings tower and summer lasts year round, yet the snows are piled deep in fields surrounding the city.
These legends are so bizarre that either great weather-controlling magic is at work within these lands, or travelers’ brains are affected by illusion, ’ overexposure to the cold, or mind affecting substances in some weird local flora. Until better explorations are made, it is impossible to prove these stories
