The desolate badlands known as the Algid Wastes lie at the northern edge of the Hold of Belkzen, where the land meets the Realm of the Mammoth Lords. The Wastes are even more desolate than the badlands to the south, being higher in elevation and covered nearly year-round by a blanket of snow. The orcs of Belkzen pass through this land in caravans, on their way north to poach the megafauna that gives the Realm of the Mammoth Kings its name. The orcs also fear the Wastes, as they are home to "ghost worms" (or remorhaz, as they are known to more civilized people).[1]
