Heroes of Midhgardhur
Glasisvellir/Glasir Plains/“The Glittering Plains”
Glasisvellir or Glasir Plains – The “Glittering Plains,” a land to the east of even Gardhariki, said to be a land of giants and sorcerers. The river Hemra separates the Glasir Plains from Risaland, and is said to be so cold that if any of it touches bare flesh, it instantly kills that flesh and must be amputated. The king of Glasir Plains is called Gudhmundur, he has a sister named Hleid who was once captured and served in the Temple of Jomali in northern Permia and later married the hero Herraudh of Gautland. A demon named Hyndlur was a prince of Glasisvellir, but he was slain by a band of heroes atop the Howling Tower of Ulfsey in the summer of 900 N.Y.
Beyond the plains of Glasisvellir, which are studded with pools of ice and shining boulders, there stands the fortified town of Grund where King Gudhmundur reigns. The town is by the river Hemra, and near the edge of the forest known as the Jarnvidhur that crosses the boundary between Midhgardhur and Jotunheimur.
