Isgofnel is an bluish white island of ice near the mouth of the Hrafgrir inlet. A casual glance at the map of Midrêth would make many think it to be glacial creep from Igas. It is actually an extension of Ice Cap. Where it would normally melt, it remains cold, bolstered by energies coming a thousand miles away from COA 411.

Isgofnel's mass has doubled over the last millennia. It is a shipping hazard for the bay and the Nautrek Sea, with icebergs breaking off at a steady rate between Bloom and Bliss.

When Glangveif fell, a group of frost giants escaped to this island. They built a small settlement, naming it Otraki Gaum, which translates to Last Stand. Their remote location and small numbers were of no threat to the Hofthorm so they were left be. The frost giants survived by fishing and raiding the coasts. This settlement has grown into a small town and today holds a population of several thousands mixed peoples.

The island has a population of caribou and other arctic beasts. The game population is managed and re-stocked. Some of these creatures are descendants of those brought here by the island's frost giant settlers or shipped in from Ice Cap via Blackjammer.
