The Walls of Winter

The Walls of Winter   
The grinding, cracking sounds people reported hearing from the fog have grown much louder and more distinct now, and large chunks of ice have been seen washing ashore on the beaches of Todtpiz and Dsinanas. The water in Alanurs' harbour is beginning to form a skin of ice in the calm areas, and the harbourmaster has been talking about ordering the ships there to leave, lest they be trapped if it freezes solid, or sunk by large chunks of ice washed in on the tide.

Above the fog, the air in the south is very clear tonight, and the full moon is remarkably bright. But an answering glow seems to come from the south, beyond the low ground fog. Lookouts in high towers in Osaliel, and even as far away as Masahakon and Batesaor, can see the moonlight reflecting off a wall of white rising high above the sea and the fog, and its glow of reflected moonlight can be seen as far north as Haul on this clear night.

Even from this far away, as impossible as it is to believe, what they see can now be unmistakably identified: it is the front edge of an immensely tall glacier, advancing inexorably upon the land.

Good news for the drinkers in the Far East. Now they can get their drinks on the rocks.

Kindaran is done for. The coordination is a joke compared to all other realms that suffered the same fate. Even before all these icing thing.

Don't be too sure about the lack of coordination in other affected realms. :P

Asylon seems to be coping rather well in Dwilight. Not sure bout Niselur and Barca. Darka from what i know in the past, should be too. But Kindaran's coordination has been absurd even before the icing. I am getting a little fed up to tell the truth.

Compared to Asylon, Kindara is a joke... unhappily. In terms of coordination, I say.
Now with the Skovgaard Family... and it's gone.
