|Location:||The Tail of Ursum|
The Frosthold Mountains are named after an old Empirical fortress called the Frosthold. This fortress was situated high above the pass at its highest point commanding views across the mountains and down into the Tail to the north and towards Vacheron in the south. It was said that the hold was so high up that on a clear day one could see the far off city of Vacheron to the south and all the way to the port of Selkie in the north. A single slim path leads from Frost Pass up to the entrance to the hold and this hold is said to be unstormable. Legend has it that the old Empire employed Stone Giants to build the fortress overseen by dwarven artisans. Now rumour holds that the Frosthold is home to a frost giant chieftan of great power and its certainly true that merchants making the trip through the pass oft times tell tales of being charged tolls to pass by a band of ogres who claim to be working for the Jarl of Frosthold.
