Iron Claws; Steel Dragon
Although called the Northern Wastes, this area is anything but wasteland. It is however, largely wild and uncivilized and it is the last place on the planet where dragons dwell. The mountains and the valleys also abound with wild game, as well as isolated bands of Giants, trolls and orcs who usually live high in the mountains.
The eastern end of the Northern Wastes are dominated by the three Brothers, three active volcanoes who have a nasty habit of erupting unpredictably at just the most inconvenient moment. Situated slightly to the west of the Three Brothers is the only settled area in the land, Nordkassel. Nordkassel was built centuries ago by the Giants, and subsequently taken over by the League of various magic users, sorcereres, and magicians, who have turned the place into a small, bustling city in the midst of the wilderness.
The princeipal export of the Northern Wastes are subdued Dragons, which the local inhabitants trap and bring to the city for sale. The dragon population is on the decline and in years to come, there may be none left to trap or sell.
