The Realms of Adventure
The Star Mounts are an ancient range of mountains that mark the southern boundary of the High Forest. They take their name from the queer lights that shine from its heights. Legends claim that these mysterious mountains are home to dragons, elves, strange bird folk, and more. Clouds, snow, and inhospitable weather blanket the peaks year round making climbing hazardous. By air, it is considered impossible for anything less powerful than a dragon to approach the Star Peaks with any degree of safety due to incredibly high winds which are a constant feature of the place.
The most unusual story about the Star Mounts is that in the upper reaches, great crystal towers grow out of the rock. It is uncertain just who or what lives inside these towers (if they even exist).
