Timinórë is a frigid valley encased by jagged icy peaks. Behind mountains devoid of roads and rarely used passes, is an icy wasteland buffeted by storms and blizzards. It is so unnaturally cold here that death meets most that enter this area. A blue-white frozen lake covers most the valley. Sometimes, a enormous giant can be seen under this ice. The elders of Einglach claim this is Malirthrak, son of the Thyrm. They claim that in the Creation War, Malirthrak challenged his father and was defeated. His corpse was cast into the lake by his father at which point the alpine lake froze solid. Thereafter, the valley became perpetually swept by chilling winds and blizzards. The winds are called Malirthrak's Wail. When these winds blow northeast into the Feyrise they sometimes merge with Melrith's Decay resulting in abnormal weather conditions. The most unsettling for Feyrise's inhabitants is the Giant's Creep. In the spring, this deep fog can last the entirety of the month of War March. These are dangerous times, with Timinórë icy brutes coming down in the highlands in great numbers, using the fog to cover their approach.

Timinórë is home to ice trolls, winter wolves, yeti, and other icy brutes. No giants live here. They consider the area cursed by Thyrm, one that brings doom upon those who dare live near the resting place of a god's son.
