Quest for Utopia
Shangris was the homeland of the now-extinct dalgar, a race of humanoid dire wolves. The first mortal creature to learn the use of magic rendered the land uninhabitable by all but the most hardy of creatures. Thousands of years ago, the country of Shangris was a part of the mainland. When Azreal Doravon, later known as the Ice King, went on his genocide, he unleashed a massive burst of magical energy which destroyed the land connecting Shangris to present-day Tanka Makoce and Kithbar, and encasing the country in a permanent blanket of snow and ice. All the old settlements are frozen ruins.
