Here There Be Dragons
Atkarsk is the bitterly cold northern home of the Tieflings. Atkarsk represents the northern frontiers of the known world; few people have been able to explore the surrounding lands, though many have tried.
Atkarsk is an incredibly mountainous region, making travel during their frequenly deadly snow storms incredibly hazardous. Their cities are found built at the bottoms of deep valleys, often built into the sides of the very mountains surrounding them.
Atkarsk adopted a policy of isolationism and closed borders at the behest of their Czar three years ago. Since then, not a single person has entered or left the country and no news has left the country either.
