During and leading upto the scourge, temperatures across the land began to plummet and legend says that a cliff-wall of ice and snow grew from the north and crushed the land before it.
Creatures of frost and death began to appear in the darkness, crops withered as the summers grew short and chill whilst the winters stretched into an eternity. Eventually the two seasons met, and all knew that the Scourge was here.
This time was the herald of the scourge and was called the Frost-Heim – amongst the peoples of Brython the term is used interchangeably for the Scourge. But should, more specifically, represent the time when the glaciers covered the land (and is thus over a hundred years longer than the Barsavian end of the Scourge).
