The snowglobe is a rare artifact that can transport it's owner to Mount Icecloak. You can SHAKE GLOBE once per year to be instantly transported to Mount Icecloak, a snowy landscape populated by the a tribe of diminutive yeti. Slay these yeti for their pelts, which you can exchange with Yngvold, an exotic furrier, for a variety of special items. Take note that once within Mount Icecloak, you will have only one hour to remain there hunting yeti and exchanging their pelts. After that time, you will be transported back from whence you came. If you wish to return early, just shake your globe once more. See also: HELP ICECLOAK, and HELP ICECLOAK WARES.
