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.

Laurel Alps

The western most realm resides the largest of the mountain ranges; the Laurel Alps. Ultimately an extension of the Frior Mountain Range to the North, these summits rival their majesty and breadth with a wind and encircling breadth of dark stone borders capped with glacier snow. Much like the woods and streams below, the Alps are not for the weak of mind or body. Their temperatures plummet in the cold seasons, hardly climbing above freezing in the spring and summer. The snow here never melts, and the air can be thin and dangerous depending on how high a traveler dares to climb.

Ram, puma, and perhaps spirits alike roam these frosty peaks preserved in their own natural ecosystem with snowy fox, hare, and weasel at the lowest rungs of the food chain. The only vegetation sturdy enough to challenge the frigid temperatures and harsh, blustering zephyrs that beat the peaks of the mountains are fir. Almost all of the natural springs are frozen over, save one. If one is lucky enough to find the narrow cave – one a half-giant could hardly dream of entering – spewing steam like that of a dragon, inside the traveler will find a hot spring. For those willing to make the treacherous climb, it could be quite the romantic getaway.

In all of its majesty and glory the Laurel Alps also serve as the Slidr River Valley’s ultimate western “end”. The ground almost defies gravity at the furthest points; chucks of the mountain have fallen sheer and deep into the ground, while others jut straight up with vertical walls. Great eagles mark this impassable stretch of mountain, and not much else.
