The "Winter Palace" of Ysborg, the 'Steading of the Ice Trolls', at the far south-eastern corner of the Linnorm Kingdom of Southmoor, is the bastion of Ysborg's ruler: the Blue Jarl. It is one of of Ysborg's few stone buildings. It is nothing more than a blocky pile of icy rocks but it is well-fortified. The throne of the Blue Jarl is made from carved mammoth tusks and is decorated with human skulls. The Blue Jarl's kennels, just outside the palace are filled with winter wolves who have sworn allegiance to the jarl and the Bear Pits host ferocious polar and grizzly bears armored and trained to fight.
