Rotary and Shipyards Park
On the river on the way to Carcross. People plant fields next to it.
Has a hospital. A suburb of Whitehorse, where John Lee’s residence is when he’s not living at the Carcross Cut-off Fort.
Carcross Cut-off Fort
Originally controlled by 7 Hakarta, which John defeats, then claims the fort for his own, earning 3,000 xp. He cannot, however, keep it guarded, and it is expected that someone will come by and reclaim it for their own eventually. The fort is controlled by a crystal inside its center. After defeating the Hakarta in this fort, John levels up to 10. Later, John frequently brings by groups of low level adventurers or hunters and lets them temporarily take over the fort to gain xp, then reclaims it for himself. At the end of Life in the North, Book 1, John has made this fort his temporary residence instead of staying with Lana, Richard, and Mikito.
Book 2: Two-story log house off the Klondike Highway that leads to either Carcross or Teslin. Contains fifty meters around it of clear aim for firing at intruders. John spent a few weeks paying to add reinforced System walls, windows, and doors, along with a Command Center that allows for a tracking system and System-compatible utilities.
Not well kept, forest stretches out on either side, scenic views, leads to Lorne Mountain and Carcross.
Lorne Mountain Community/Mount Lorne
Deserted, but in an orderly way, leaving a mystery as to where the people went.
Carcross has a makeshift barrier of cars, furniture, and a trench-wall, with a guarded gate. Inside is a gas station, a motel, a gift shop, a church, various residences, and the Tagish First Nation Office buildings. Book 2: the forest has been pushed back more, a deep trench dug in front of the wall, with added beam rifles on the wall as well as heavy weaponry watchtowers. City center has also been upgraded to serve as a final fallback point.

Whitehorse Butchering Yard
Used to be the pre-apocalypse fire hall: next to the river, a single-story sprawling building with wide barn doors that face onto the old prospector train tracks, complete with smelly compost piles. Purge Disease spells cast by Mages and low-level enchantments keep the smell and disease from polluting Whitehorse. Winds blowing the smell across the river has attracted increasing numbers of monsters, however.
A pub in Whitehorse set up during John’s absence living in the fort. Usually busy and filled with hunting parties, craftsmen, and serving women. Serves beer, steaks, and fish and chips, as well as cross-hatched ribs in barbeque sauce and bowls of stew. Also serves Apocalypse Ale, a brew stronger than the usual beer John drinks which the Yerick Capstan First Fist deems as decently strong.
Several Dungeons are encountered in Redeemer of the Dead, Book 2. See the Dungeon page.
A distant world taken over by the system. It’s integration into the system is considered a sad story. It’s inhabitants decided to collectively ignore the system and not interact with it. This caused mana to continuously pool and build up until the inhabitants themselves began mutating under its influence. The planet itself became a World Titan and flew away. It’s current location is unknown and it has lore written about it in several fictional stories which Tahar the Yerick shares with Ali.
Yerick Compound in Whitehorse
A walled area with watchtowers and buildings inside, all connected via shaded walkways on the ground and in the air, broken up by a series of open air, grassy courtyards. The buildings have door ways that are at least twelve feet high and ceilings a good twenty feet up, with a minimum of three stories in each portion.
Carved by the Yukon River a few kilometers outside Whitehorse.
Kwanlin Dun Cultural Center
Reclaimed. A place in Whitehorse.
Two-Horn Mountain Dungeon
A dungeon filled with Frakin, which are infested with Onlivik Spores. John’s usual party attempts to clear it and almost perish. John and his party team up with Capstan and the other Yerick to attempt to clear this dungeon again, but it unfortunately results in Tahar’s death. Finally on their third try, with the aid of a virus created by Leonard to sicken the Frakin as well as calling in as many people to join them as they can, including the Yerick, Hakarta, a reticent Bill, and Jim’s hunting groups, the dungeon is cleared. But Richard is killed in the process, along with many other casualties. What made the dungeon extra difficult was an infestation of Onlivik Spores which made the Frakin sentient.
