Smokewater Valley and Northern Hot Springs - Location
Written By: Ellen Million (Writer), Deirdre / Wyld_Dandelyon (Developer), Elizabeth Barrette (Developer), Lorna (Comtessa) (Developer)
Natural hot springs are not uncommon in the north, but Smokewater Valley has been turned into a northern retreat.

Hot springs are not uncommon in the north, but most are small pools that are either too hot or too chilly to make good bathing, are hard (or even dangerous!) to access, or are unpleasantly strong with minerals.

An exception to this is Smokewater Valley, a narrow, protected valley that has a large, clear hot spring at one end, flowing gently through a series of interconnected woodland pools. Small streams and summer meltwater flow into the springs, cooling them.

The valley and its foliage are too fragile to support the entire population of even a small village, and snow-unicorns can be particularly destructive to their surroundings, so the prized area is shared between the members of all three northern villages.
