A settlement in the Oblast

The Oblast is the broad, empty frozen land, punctuated by rivers, small settlements and raiding bands that makes up most of Kislev. [1a]

Inhabitants

The oblast is home to innumerable minor and weak spirit of little intellect who are capable of little more than making noises and moving small objects short distances. They also seem to ignore groups of travellers, preferring to target lone individuals. For every tale of a traveller lured to his doom by the sounds, there are just as many stories of inexplicable bells waking one in time to avoid them becoming a meal for wolves. [1a]

Locations

  • Enisov: A village in the South Oblast, nestled in a valley, overlooked by brooding fortress, the abode of its boyar, Stepan Krasnyi. [1a]

  • Ruins: The ruins of ancient and long forgotten civilisations can be found across the Oblast, they are often dangerous. [1a]
    • Rose Ruins: Squat stone structures built for a people, shorter than Humans but taller than Dwarfs. Although there are a still some smashed statues lying around, no one has been able to put together enough to make any reasonable creature. The ruins gain their name from the creeping, deep red roses that grow over the stone and which have unusually long thorns. [1a]
