My wife’s first ever character is a Gnome Wizard Far Traveller that plays the Erhu.
Is there anywhere in the realms analogous to Siberia or Mongolia? Those are the places spurring her imagination for this.
I could make something up, but I wanted to ask the expert. In my original Realms there are no close real-world analogues. The closest region to the icier parts of Siberia (that also captures its remoteness) is Sossal. TSR added a close analogue to Mongolia in northwesternmost Kara-Tur.#Realmslore
