The Lofty Mountains
These are the tallest mountains in the Western Shores,
with many peaks over 20,000ft. The highest peak is
Mount Imperium (named in the days of Celinad), at
27,500 ft. There are no known passes over these
mountains and they are thus very difficult to cross.
The tops are almost always shrouded in clouds.
While the Drakor Mountains to the south are the homes
of orcs and goblins, the Lofty Mountains are the home
of giants, gryphons, and dragons. The Storm King is
said to make his home here, and the mountains are thus
revered by Brondheimers. There may be some truth to
this, as the mountains foster storms at all seasons of
the year, and even the winter blizards which come
down from them are always accompanied by thunder.
