One of the most infamous locations inside the continent, it once featured a small village within its gracious white-colored snow and cold temperatures. This location was first introduced within Reign of Darkness, and serves as the home of Rikai the Hedgehog and Madam Weiss until the former annihilated it from existence.
Ecology and Climate
Most of the environment is covered with snow plains and hills. Throughout the whole year, the location features numerous hailstorms and cold temperatures. It is located in the far southeastern part of the continent, adjacent to Razor Zone, south of Scorched Dunes, and northeast of Mormon Woods.
Despite having a negative reputation, Snowbound is also famous for its fields of white snow and beautiful auroras. Most travelers often find themselves gazing at its beautiful horizon; it is a rather common place for sightseeing.
While its inhabitants adapted to its harsh, cold temperatures, vegetation within the region is scarce. The most valuable source of food is the harmless Mobini snow rabbits and other small animals that dwell inside its plains.
