There particular mountains, while large, do not reach a very high altitude. And evidence also suggests that it may have been a volcano. There is a Duergar clan that makes this mountain it’s home. They occasionally raid the settlements located to the north of the mountain. There is also a small tribe of fire giants here that own a small city named Dawnstone. Dawnstone is a Human and Dwarven mining community that makes a dangerous living working the mountain.
Dawnstone has been around for close to seventy years now. It’s made up of a small Dwarven clan driven out of their nearby home by fire giants, and a collection of random vagrants, mostly human, who came out this way to start a new life. The promise of riches definitely turned several heads as well.
