The Steppes are a frigid grassland leading to the frozen mountains further north. It was from this area that the Rallosian armies opened a portal to the Plane of Earth, commencing their invasion of the planes. The defunct portal, known as the Portal of War, still remains standing. Now the region is overrun with the Stonemight goblin clan, the Darkfell gnoll tribe, and a contingent of the most fearsome hill giants Antonica has ever witnessed. The cold wind rolling off the nearby peaks will send shivers up one's spine, but it only gets colder the more north one goes from here. The numerous caverns offer a brief shelter from the biting cold, but the creatures inside will. Hunting the treants, centaurs, and other wildlife here can be fairly lucrative for anyone wanting to gain some experience before venturing deeper into the mountains.
