Songs of the Seven
House Schwanel rules over Odane, one of Silverfrost’s most strategically important cities. The valley it sits in is the only way north on land, other than the difficult passage over the mountains. The walls that surround the city are strong and tall, and inside the city is passage to the mines, from which iron for making weapons and armor is obtained.
Odane boasts some of the finest smiths in Silverfrost, and is known to breed powerful warriors. However, as it the furthest south of the seats of the great houses, it also sees a great amount of trade. Odane is usually the first place to hear of news from the southern kingdoms, and is the first to learn of new fads as well. However, the southerners still feel alienated in the city, as it is far too cold and the northern lifestyle is too different from their own.
Beyond Odane, the Silverfrost web of roads begins. This web boasts hundreds of roads that lead to nowhere in particular, designed to confuse invading armies from the south. It is one of the best kept secrets of the north.
