The frost folk were a race of humans that long ago struck a bargain with a cold power.[1]

Physical characteristicsEdit

Frost folk had the height and weight of typical humans.[1] They often had bright blue eyes, pale, snowy skin, and blonde hair so pale as to be almost white.[2] A noticeable chill surrounded them.[1]


Frost folk were immune to the effects of cold. They had darkvision and innate snowsight. From their left eye frost folk could produce a cone of icy mist to blast the area in front of them.[1]


Frost folk often raided to the far south in dark, cold winters and took plunder and captives.[3] They were disciplined fighters with a keen sense of tactics. They enjoyed bloody slaughter and often set ambushes.[1]


Frost folk were originally humans from Sossal[3] (and were thus said to be distant relations of the modern Sossrim[2]) and traced their origin to the war between Raumathar and Narfell. Many from Sossal allied themselves with the Raumathari and sought power from the "cold outer darkness" (i.e., ice devils), and so the frost folk were born.[3]

Relations with other racesEdit

Frost folk were known as Siksin Neneweth to the Vil Adanrath, Aikulen to the Damarans, and Shen Ghel to the Tuigan.[4]


Frost folk were found in the northern Hordelands[4] and dwelt farther north in the endless ice.[3]
