Purple Mountains

The Purple Mountains are a large range, located north of the Sea of Alyr.

These enormous mountains stretch east from the Greymist Hills until they reach the Eldir Vaas River.

The mountain range has long served as the border between the kingdoms of Elyria and Serathyr, and also as the boundary between the Highlands and Marshlands.

The Mountains are sparsely populated, except for scattered human and dwarvish settlements, most of which are located between its southern foothills and the northern coast of the Sea of Alyr.

These settlements are constantly vigilant, because several goblin and orc tribes also dwell in several nearby caves.

The region is usually overcast, and in the dim light, the dark gray stones of the mountains appear purple, and that is how the mountains acquired their name.

Within these peaks is the the Valley of Inen; home to the accursed region of the Burning Forest.

The Purple Mountains are also home to the Shrine of Nevron, an important local Holy Site.

THe entire region between the southern base of the mountains and the northern coast of the Sea of Alyr is known as Galador.
