Here the Mountains Whisper
To the south of Daal’Dorash, spanning from the coast far inland, lay the Thunder Peaks, a range of jagged, snow-capped mountains which separate the Land of the Daals from the southern wastes. Only a few passes through them are known to exist, many blocked by snow almost the full year round, which means that many peoples and monsters who have been lucky to travel through them unharmed typically end up trapped with no way to return from whence they came. This has made the foothills at their base a cauldron of conflict constantly boiling over with blood from both man and beast alike.
After the Daalish Spring, many of the Iron Dwarves are said to have fled to the Thunder Peaks for safety and either died under the harsh conditions or remain there to this day. Only Kharn the Red has been known to keep his home there for any length of time, but even he must put up with the assortment of wild weather, enormous giants, and lost or inquisitive creatures that find themselves deep in the mountain’s bosom.
