Icewrack is a frozen land in the north, sometimes known as the Frozen Waste.[1] It is just south of The Barrier, and borders the Northern Sea or the Boiling Sea.[2] The Blueheart Glacier flows through Icewrack. Njord's Hearth may be in or near Icewrack.


  • The Frostiron Tribe lives at the northern end of Icewrack, near the Northern Sea.
  • Rylai, an unusual child born with the ability to freeze everything in her wake, was sent by her exasperated parents to live in Icewrack, where she become a student of the Ice Wizard. She is able to summon enormous shards of ice from Icewrack, raining them down on her opponents.[3]
  • Tusk is native to the area, and returns to the far north every winter to visit the Frostiron Tribe.
  • A great white wolf spirit once lived in or near Icewrack, whose presence foreshadowed death. Many hunters attempted to kill it, until it was said to have been slain by a talented archer, possibly Traxex.[4]


The peoples of Icewrack may use copper coins as currency.[5] Sapphires are found in the glaciers of Icewrack, and are valued by the artisans of the Frostiron Tribe.[6]

Icewrack is known for a fine type of white wine, which is greatly prized by Donte Panlin and the Nivan Gallants.[7]

There is some evidence that the lands in and around Icewrack are embroiled in conflict.[8]


A particular species of wolf, the Icewrack wolf, can be found in Icewrack.[9] Tusk-foxes also live in the region.[10]
