The settlements to the farthest north of Aver are organized into a nation known as Turanthia, named after the largest elven city, which acts as it's capital. The majority of these northerners are elves, although other species can be found amongst them in small numbers. Turanthian settlements are usually small and scattered, as the conditions are difficult at best.
These Snow Elves, as they are affectionately known, serve a vital role on the continent. The north is inundated with randomly appearing gates from which spew forth hordes of demons and devils. the Northern Rangers act as a bulwark against the demon hordes, and protect both their settlements and the whole of the continent from the danger of an organized demonic invasion.
