The World Pillars
The massive mountain range that cuts through the continent contains the largest mountains in the world. Apart from the Karak Ankor holds that have surface entrances and a few outpost the rest of the mountain ranges is a savage untamed wilderness. Even the Tellision Republic was unable to bring order to this land. tough mountaineers, savage orc war-bands, and sturdy barbarian clans call these mountains home. Along side them are the various subterranean creature that lash out from the numerous cavern networks in the night. It is believe that some of those caverns lead the the Karak Ankor underway and many adventures have tried to circumnavigate the hold defenses to get into the grand underground empire. I am unaware of any adventurers who have successfully survived the environment and the denizens of both the mountains and the caverns to achieve this feat.
