The Lord of the Rings – Lossoth’s norsu

norsu – mammoth (”elephant” in finnish)

LOTRO: Norsu-leiri, the Camp of the Mammoth, was established by the Lossoth as a place from which to hunt the native mammoths.

LOTRO: The Lossoth appear in the zone of the Ice-Bay of Forochel introduced in April 2008. The Lossoth skate on ice and push sledges, and have the ability to tame and ride to war on mammoths. Many aspects of their language, culture, and appearance seem to be derived from or inspired by that of the Finnish, Sami, and Inuit peoples.

Frostbite has been described in military history for millennia. The Greeks encountered and discussed the problem of frostbite as early as 4000 BCE. Researchers have found evidence of frostbite in humans dating back 5,000 years, in an Andean mummy. Napoleon’s Army was the first documented instance of mass cold injury in the early 1800s. According to Zafren, nearly 1 million combatants fell victim to frostbite in the First and Second World Wars, and the Korean War.

Society and culture
Notable cases of frostbite include Captain Lawrence Oates, an English army captain and Antarctic explorer, who died of complications of frostbite in 1912. In 1982, noted American rock climber, Hugh Herr lost both legs below the knee to frostbite after being stranded on Mount Washington in a blizzard. In addition, many Mount Everest explorers have lost digits and limbs to frostbite. Beck Weathers, a survivor of the 1996 Everest disaster, lost his nose and hands to frostbite. In 1999, Scottish mountaineer, Jamie Andrew had all four limbs amputated due to sepsis from frostbite sustained climbing the Mont Blanc massif.
