Realms of Cold
Spine of the World
The Spine of the World is the range of mountains in Northern Faerûn that lies just south of Icewind Dale and the northern icecaps. It is said to be almost impossible to cross, teeming with ogres, orcs, and other foul creatures of the north. Bards say that if one does manage to cross it, one comes to an endless sea of mist and ice, in which white dragons wait to consume anything that comes their way. This is just a myth, however, as white dragons are quite rare.
To the south is the Lurkwood forest.
