Amongst Friends and Foes
A range of dark, brooding peaks that once marked the boundary between the ancient lands of mysterious Netheril and the now long ruined dwarven empire: Delzoun. The Nether Mountains have been known for a long time as good landmarks to stay away from. Orcs of a dozen different tribes roam the hills, hobgoblins hold massive forts deep in the mountains and a family of blue dragons nestle at the highest peaks. Rumors are abound of shrines and temples of dark deities, ruins of ancient wizard towers and nefarious beings, and as such most people steer well clear of the Nether Mountains
A few settlements linger on the edge of these monster-infested valleys and peaks. Hilltop, a small silverminer’s town is the most prominent, but several mining and logging settlements line the Nethers.
