Frost folk were originally humans from Sossal (and were thus said to be distant relations of the modern Sossrim) and traced their origin to the war between Raumathar and Narfell. Many from Sossal allied themselves with the Raumathari and sought power from the "cold outer darkness" (i.e., ice devils), and so the frost folk were born.
Frost folk often raided to the far south in dark, cold winters and took plunder and captives. They were disciplined fighters with a keen sense of tactics. They enjoyed bloody slaughter and often set ambushes.
As a culture centered on hunting the frost folk often wore the stitched together furs of beasts, such as arctic foxes and bears. A few of them were known to wear helmets fashioned from the skulls of bears, wolves, and wolverines.
Frost folk were found in the northern Hordelands and dwelt farther north in the endless ice. They also appeared further westwards, sharing hunting grounds with the Ice Hunters among the floes of the Sea of Moving Ice.
