Small, mostly uninhabited, and — until recently — perpetually frozen, Halicarn is a land of soaring mountains and deep crevasses. Its metal-rich mines, recently unearthed after the permafrost melted, have started a gold rush that is enriching some and bankrupting others. A huge push to find ever richer veins has spurred development of shipping lanes and roads deep into the unexplored continent.
Not officially governed by any specific entity, most areas are still up for grabs in Halicarn. The area's proximity to Kodama has led to some interesting political situations, however, and some suspect a hostile incursion from one of the dominant dwarven families is fast approaching.
