As little as there was within the Abardean area of Drachell, there is much less now. The once snow covered peaks have shed some of their icy nature and have become the host to light volcanic activity. This has greatly changed the land.
It is unknown what has happened to fortress that once stood tall in the area. There have been rumors that it was merely unaffected by the energy blast and remains covered entirely by snow. No one is quite sure how this is possible.
Once home to several nasty creatures and used commonly as a smuggling route to and from the Mythril Mines, the Icicle Caverns have been collapsed into, making access to the other side impossible by foot.
The burst of Dark energy brought the vast Abardean mountains crashing down, becoming fuel for the freshly surfaced volcanoes that came in it's place. The cold winds from Abardean now sweep through the land freely as their are no more mountains to contain it.
