The area has an abundance of wildlife including oxen, deer, reindeer, snowcats, wild snow steeds, caribou, seals, walruses, and bears. Monsters that roam the region include ice goblins, giant ice serpents, frost worms, and wolves. The local diet is mostly comprised of hunted game, supplemented with fish obtained by ice fishermen cutting holes in the ice plain. Food is expensive, and is imported into this region.
JG Hex #-  
0413  An abandoned mine. A simple horizontal passage carved into the side of this plateau hits rock after going  through 25 feet of ice. The passage is more or less straight, slopes downward at a slight angle and goes another 70 feet through the permafrost and into the rock of the hillside. At the end of the shaft is a played out 
gold vein. There is still plenty of mediocre quartz crystal here. 29 cubic feet all told
0510  A warm geothermal spring upwells through the ice here. Twice a day, the pressure builds up enough to shatter the ice in a 30' diameter  and warm steaming water flows over the existing ice and then soon freezes.
0714  A sign marks the direction  to Snowshade Village and also to East Spear Village. At one time, the ice ships used this as a guide
0815  The  Abandoned Stronghold. part of the big tower roof is missing, and the stable has mosty collapsed as well, and the store rooms within the keep have been converted to stables. A drawbridge has been built at the front gate, and a moat (often crusted over with ice, and filled with snow separates the stronghold from the Ice Plain, below. Eighteen Ice Goblins have made this keep their home. Whenever anyone approaches during the day, the place will appear empty as the goblins have tunneled a lair from a secret entrance in the cellar of the great hall 150' to the Southwest. At night, there is a good chance to meet one or more goblins roaming around. The goblins occassionally sneak into Snowshade and steal when they must, but mostly hunt game at night.
