Rocky, mountainous surroundings have kept most visitors away from this frozen landscape, which are dotted with crumbling ruins and ancient cathedrals. However, some call the Peaks home, but they live in a state of constant anxiety; the sense that something is waiting to prey on them when any moment of weakness strikes. When the sun goes down inside the Peaks, the people hunker down in their towns. Any who are caught outside at night are as good as dead, for if they don't fall prey to monsters, the cold will kill them.
The Peaks are also the home to a group of religious zealots; devout monks seeking refuge in the isolation of the Peaks to find enlightenment. Their fervant belief in their higher powers keeps them feeling warm and safe during the night, but has left them completely ignorant of the dangers that are slowly, slowly encroaching upon them.
- The Peaks take inspiration from Victorian Gothic horror.
