In the Shadow of Titans
The Wild Steppe
Spanning from the northern edge of the expanse all the way to the southern edge of the northern mountains. Sparsely wooded, filled with rolling hills and tall grass, the steppe is a sprawling rugged place where only the tough survive.
A relatively tame frontier compared to the northern mountains and the Expanse, it has provided those in Black Iron and in Port Hope a relatively easy expansion compared to Hesperides in the south. The generally agreeable climate has allowed trade and travel to flourish in central and northern Jotunland. However this easy travel works both ways, and jotun raids are a constant and frightening possibility for those brave pioneers who have decided to lay claim in this wild land.
The mix of fauna here is comprised mostly of what you’d find in the northern most reaches of the expanse as well as the southernmost sections of the Northern Mountains. Prehistoric beasts scamper alongside shaggy haired trolls from the mountains, and both are equally at home snacking on human.
