Rahab - rumored
The Frozen Plateau Zone is an area located on the Mobian continent of Artika, roughly in the middle of it. It is a large, primarily flat stretch of tundra dominated by towering glacial plateaus. The Gelid Forest sits to the east of the Zone, and partially surrounds it.
The once peaceful place has become considerably treacherous to pass through, due to the presence of the Artika Egg Army, who have carved out a base within one of the largest glacial plateaus at the behest of Dr. Eggman.
The Artika Egg Army Moves In
Seeing that there were large deposits of valuable Gelidium and Algidite hidden within the Shiverstone Caves, and possibly within the other glacial plateaus as well, Dr. Eggman ordered Egg Boss Tundra the Walrus to erect a base at the Zone, carving it out within one of the largest glacial plateaus; there, a female snow leopard named Ivory was appointed to maintain the base as a Sub-boss.
There was another reason Eggman wanted to stake out his presence here; there were rumors that the Frozen Orb of Kyanos could be found deep within the Shiverstone Caves, and Eggman wanted the artifact to serve as the core to his latest creation; the Egg Reaver.
However, as hard as Ivory and her Egg Soldiers scoured the maze-like caves, they had no luck in finding any trace of the mythical orb. Frustrated yet growing impatient, Eggman decided he would have to settle for a large Frost Sapphire, refined from Algidite mined by Burrobots and Excavators.
A base owned by the Artika Egg Army, carved out within one of the largest glacial plateaus. It was created within the span of five months, and their presence has made the Zone quite treacherous to trek through. The Artika Egg Army stationed themselves here in order to take advantage of the deposits of Gelidium and Algidite found within the Shiverstone Caves, as well as to try and find the Frozen Orb of Kyanos for Dr. Eggman; the Frozen Orb is rumored to sit within the deepest and coldest section of the caves.
A large series of caves formed into the body of the Frozen Plateaus Zone's largest glacial plateau. The caves extend about a mile below the permafrost, yet no one has seen how far they actually go. The caves are said to be the home of the primordial Ice deity Rahab, although no one has been able to confirm this.
Flora and Fauna
The top layer of soil is somewhat thin, and the subsoil consists primarily of permafrost, making the growth of large plants nearly impossible. However, Shiverstems and the hardy Icebushes are able to grow on the topsoil just fine.
The fauna consists primarily of Frost Imps, feeding off the small creatures that eat the Shiverstems and Icebush berries. Their presence allows larger predators like Denkuzuri and, more rarely, Tizheruks, to live here; the former often eat the same small creatures that the Frost Imps do, but have been known to prey on the Imps themselves. Tizheruks will eat Imps as well, but, being semi-aquatic creatures, they are more commonly found at the icy coastlines of Artika.
Within the span of five months, the Artika Egg Army has carved out a base within one of the largest plateaus, making travel through the Zone much more treacherous. The Subzero Glacier Egg Base is a secondary base of the Artika Egg Army; the primary one is located in the Cool Edge Zone.
