A land of quiet surrender amidst a tumbling terrain of frost. Icy blasts of wind swirl, as the powdery snow claims all sound as her own, leaving only silent glaciers to glimmer in the light. A world frozen in time and a moment of quiet peace that belies the tumultuous creativity churning the belly of this magic frost country.
