The Hyperborean Speaks!

Hail Traveler!

It is I, the Hyperborean! Mouthpiece of the fabled lands of Hyperborea… I know, a witty and somewhat confusing name on both accounts.

Soon we shall have this website fully functional, and full of information for seasoned Hyperboreans and newcomers alike.

Till then, may your adventures be full of wonder.
