Reign of Winter
Whitethrone rises from the frozen cliffs along the eastern shores of Glacier Lake. Spires of white marble and domed buildings sculpted of ice that never melts surround a palace perched precariously at cliff’s edge over the frigid, turbulent waters of Glacier Lake. The main street running from the city gates to the queen’s palace is aptly named the Bone Road, paved with the skulls of the Linnorm King warriors slain by the queen of Witches and her minions during the Winter War. It is occasionally widened with the skulls of traitors, failed invaders, and citizens who incur the wrath of the White Witches.
The city is populated by descendants of Baba Yaga’s sons and daughters from previous queens, the ruling family, enslaved descendants of the Linnorm Kings who survived the Winter War, and clans of ice trolls. Although relatively few in number, snow goblins, ogres, frost giants, and tamed beasts also reside in Whitethrone serving the masters of the capital city in various ways.
