Welcome to Slidr River Valley, home to the strong, the brave, and the resilient. Challenging the odds surmounting against them, the Houses of equine fight in a power struggle for ultimate control over the Valley. With the Bloodless fading away after the First Great Winter of Three, Fimbulvetr, the Slidr River Valley is in a state of discord as the Houses throw themselves into an arms race for power. From predators to the gods themselves every day ushers in a new obstacle to overcome. Fimbulvetr is a literate intermediate-advanced fantasy horse role-play with a survivalist concept. The environment is designed to work against your characters as they move forward in their journey through the arcana riddled realm of Slidr River Valley. With an immense history and lore, we encourage our members to create locals and "outsiders" alike.

Autumn Year 501 | The heat has broken, and the trees of the Valley begin their transition from emerald to citrine and rubine. The temperatures steadily drop as the progression of Autumn claims all of the Slidr River Valley and plunges it into the hallowed solstace. Snow already weightlessly falls from the sky on cold nights - especially to the North and West. The Laurel Alps and Frior Mountain Range begin the process of wrapping themselves in thick white blankets of snow, leaving the once purple snowcapped border of the continent a stark white crescendo on the horizon. To the East, the heat wave has finally broken. The staggering temperatures have fallen simply from the harsh miles of wind sweeping from the mountainous vales and into the bowl of the desert. Those huddling in the Frekr Oasis for salvation will find the nights frigid. Best light the plinth fires and stock up for the winter, for it is just around the corner.

The Bifrost

At first the mist is whimsical and ethereal as it settles upon the path of the wanderer. It can appear anywhere: on the outskirts of your home town, at the edge of a forest, or mayhaps along a shore. It is all the same; a rift constructs and wishes for the present to cross. Wherever the traveler (others may call them victims) may be, the land will always turn to a dense field. The tall grasses could brush even a taller equine’s belly. Sometimes wildflowers will bloom, other times wheat. And no matter how hard one may try, no matter of squinting will impart a sky through the thickness of this rift’s brume. Meloncholy envelopes it in a thick blanket, but the days where the sun is at its brightest a soft golden glow will permeate it. This mystical realm is entirely at the mercy of the ancient, sentient force that commands it. And what is that force? Why, the Bifrost.

A mighty, gnarled tree whose branches stretch high into the mist and clouds until it fades into obscurity controls this place. The bark is a rich ecru, pitch like the most fertile of soils, and course as gravel. The closer a traveler comes to the behemoth, the more and more roots will breach from the grounds. Peculiar, these roots naturally grow runes upon the bark, and weave intricately in plaints when they so desire. It moans in the winds that whip across the steppes, and you find your only path through the cave system of the roots at its base, where more rune-marked, woven root arches beckon the curious inside. Within, you find that some paths lead you across stone columns that drop into nothing but blackness, and some others too narrow or short to traverse at all. But, those of patient mind, will find that the roots eternally shift. After an allotted period of time, the subterranean labyrinth readjusts the maze, offering new corridors and paths for those brave enough to challenge it. Those who make it through come to a canyon on the otherside, where the winds howl, and a bridge constructed of these immortal roots that stretch the length. It is the one and only bridge to the Slidr River Valley. Welcome.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do I need to wait for my Bifrost thread to be completed prior to posting elsewhere on Fim?
      A. Of course not! Once you've posted your Bifrost starter you are free to post anywhere else!

Q. What happens if no one responds?
      A. If no one responds to help your character through the Bifrost then the Storyteller will guide you (and test you) through the Bifrost! These prompts will come after 48 hours of no reply.

Q. Can more than one character cross at a time?
      A. Of course! There isn't a limit to how many people can cross at a time.
