The Snowblind Waste is the 14th island in the Hunting Grounds.


A frozen nightmare with rotten visibility, frequent storms, and terrifying Behemoths, the Snowblind Waste seems caught in a perpetual battle between umbral and frost aether. Some freelance treasure hunters who discovered a few Unseen relics there have hypothesized the cultists had some influence on the island's lethal equilibrium of frost and umbral, but the official Orrery position is that this kind of power is far beyond a "mere cult". Both Arkan Drew and Dr. Priyani have warned their superiors that this is short-sighted.
