Antarctic Ice Yeti



The Ice Yetis arrived in Antarctica around 400 B.C. There is no indication of transportation from other areas of the world. How the yetis arrived is still a complete mystery, but blueprints discovered indicate the the yetis had already planned for a city on Antarctica.

Golden Age

The Ice Yeti civilization reached modern day levels of technology through isolation and near infinite resources. They yetis were an advanced people, utilizing everything they had at their disposal, such as food and minerals.


There is no evidence that shows the decline of the civilization. The lack of evidence points to the likely event that the entire population just simply vanished. (Wolfkill, 2005)

Cultural Patterns


The Ice Yeti civilization was ruled through power. The strongest and largest of the yetis would rule over the smaller ones. Those who felt confident enough could challenge the current leaders in a test of strength in order to determine which would have the honor of sitting on the council. The council is also ordered by size and strength, with the legendary Yeti king towering over his people.


Multiple mining facilities have been discovered under the ice of Antarctica, along with advanced fish farming systems. The economy of the Ice Yetis was completely self sustained and controlled by the ruling council. (Phillis, 2011)

Class Structure

The highest class were the biggest yetis. These towering behemoths ranged from 15' to 20', as indicated by the various scales located around the temple complexes. These were most likely used to determine height and weight, so as to determine class. The smallest yetis ranged in the 3' range, and were most likely the servant class. The rest remained in the working class as builders and miners.


Art was highly regarded by the citizens, most especially paintings and sculptures. They were used as a way to record their history and legends. The temple complexes served as modern day equivalents of art museums and schools. (Wolfkill, 2005)

City-building and architecture

The architecture of the one and only city of Quatlzecan is uniform. The majority of buildings were built as ziggurats. Everything was built to a fixed blueprint, which were discovered inside one of the main temple complexes. Through the blueprints, the population has been estimated around 2,000,000. The housing was planned around housing just that many people.


Today, the main temple complex stands relatively untouched. The city has been designated an archeological site, and access to Antarctica is currently restricted to research teams. The continent spanning city is being researched extensively by international archeological teams from major countries, such as Great Britain and China. (Phillis, 2012)
