KhelekRash is the elven name for the Great Glacier. This unfathomed slab of ice spans the entire north of the empire, and in many place can be up to a mile in thickness.
Little lives on the glacier, but the elves have made it their home. The inhospitable region gives them a measure of freedom from the empire. They have largely survived by harvesting Cloudflesh to feed themselves, but also a significant portion of the empire’s rabble.
The Winter Court occupies a castle carved from the glacier, a glittering monument to the beauty and coldness of the elves. The elves have made this city a refuge on the glacier, using unique magics to stave off the cold, at least for their friends. However, the society of the Court is constantly devious and deadly. The elvish nobles have a complex set of rules of one-upmanship and privilege. The fate of any elf in the Court can rise and fall within days if they make the wrong friends, or worse, the wrong enemies.
