The Krosven Steppe
The wide taiga that acts as a boundary to the north of Iro, the Frozen Forest is a thick, pinewood forest with some of the fiercest monsters known to man. The northern provinces of Eora spend considerable amount of time just defending themselves from the onslaught of monsters there, and every expedition into the forest has met with disaster. Some believe that the forest goes on forever, getting thicker and thicker until it is simply a wall of tree trunks. Others believe the cold is a powerful protective spell for some immense treasure buried beneath the permafrost.
