The Eastern Wastes are a vast area of frozen ground covering much of the northeastern continent of Velious. There are many groups here, the Coldain, the Frost Giants, and the orcs of Ry’Gorr Keep, who have outposts or homes here.


The Eastern Wastes, for being frozen tundra, is swarming with life that has acclimated to the weather here. Many dangerous monsters cross this area, and combined with the frequently broken up nature of the surface, makes hunting on the open plain fairly dangerous, as monsters will frequently wander by in the middle of a fight. Virtually every creature here, other than the Coldain, will attack outlanders on sight.


Despite the fact that this area is swarming with dangerous life, there are also many small locations for hunting in a more controlled fashion. There are multiple huts of Coldain, a large giant fort, and Ry’Gorr Keep located somewhere in this vast zone. This will likely be a very popular hunting zone, as there is a large area in which to hunt and a large variety of creatures to hunt.
