Valdeholm is the grand city of the ice giants of northern Antonica. The Krithgor giants refused to enter battle with the rest of Rallos Zek's children as they waged war on the elemental Plane of Earth, and for that they were punished by the god of war. Those that survived the curse of Beltron in Frostcrypt still reside in Valdeholm, locked in an eternal struggle against their ancestors, the Shades of Zek. The Shades believe the only way to end the curse to destroy every last living Krithgor, while the giants living in Valdeholm defend themselves while searching for a different means of ending Zek's curse. Adventurers visiting the city will have a decision to make when it comes to who they side with in the ongoing struggle. Several missions and quests are available involving the Wraithguards and the Shades of Zek.
