Hellfire Mountains

This huge volcanic mountain range is located in northern Avokhar. The Hellfire range separates the desert realm of Vilzar from the Sanjaara Jungle. Within these mountains is the famed Sky-Valley; home to the Republic of Kendar. Also located in the western foothills of these mountains are the cities of Shard, Sasserine and Caldera. The lowlands south and west of the mountains are known as the Rockdale region of Avokhar.

As the Hellfire Mountains stretch east across Avokhar, they merge with the gigantic Sha'Dur Mountains. The mountains also serve as an virtually impassable barrier between the fierce desert peoples of Vilzar to the north, and the Eloysian peoples of the vast Sanjaara Jungle to the South. Because of its important strategic location, nestled in the Sky-Valley, Kendar long ago fortified both the norther and southern passages through the mountains. On the northern end, the fortress of Castle Defiant guards the passage thru the Hellfire Mountains. While the Fortress of Ironspike guards the southern passage. The only other known route into the sky-valley is under the cliffs of the city of Shard, which is a fortified city like no other.

Once within the Hellfire range, in some of the highest peaks of these great mountains, lie the Kendarum cities of Dragonloft and Highspire.
