"I went to the southern edge of the Great Taiga once. I nearly lost my fingers. Truth be told it's not even the wolves, the white bears or the corpse-eaters you have to be afraid of up there. It's the cold. The Wessuth who live up there are beyond hardy."
-Stornan, a Wessuth serving aboard the Avadian penteconter Phoenix.
The Great Taiga is a stretch of hundreds of miles of boreal forest stretching across almost the whole of far northern Arikanda
