Spine of the World

The Spine of the World (also known as Wam) mountain range stretches from the westernmost part of Faerûn south of Icewind Dale to the eastern edge of the Cold Wood where it joins up with the Ice Mountains that stretch all the way to the Anauroch. Folks all across the lands of the Savage Frontier and the Silver Marches, but especially those in Scornubel refer to the Spine as ‘the Wall’ typically because it is simply an endless, nearly impassable range of high, jagged, perpetually ice-covered mountains, but also because on the winter days when the white snow covered faces of the peaks meet the iron-grey of the sunless winter sky, it appears as though it is holding up sky.
