Hellfire Mountains

This huge, volcanic mountain range is located in northern Avokhar and separates the desert realm of Vilzar from the vast Sanjaara Jungle.

Within these treacherous 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 natives of the Sea of Sand, located to the north, and the Eloysian peoples of the endless 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 these mountains.

On the northern end, the massive fortress of Castle Defiant guards the passage leading to the great desert sands of Vilzar. The equally imposing fortress of Ironspike guards the southern passage, which leads to the Rockdale region and its neighboring jungles.


In the midst of this range, atop some of its highest peaks, lie the Kendari cities of Dragonloft and Highspire.
