Fall of the Warlock Kings
Older and lower than the White Mountains in the west, the Black Mountains are still rugged and unpleasant. There are many small passes through the mountains, and one large and year-round accessible one between Lughan and Kydon Kail. In the summer and early fall, the mountains are often bare and black, earning them their name. Rumors of dragons in the mountains, descendants of the Seven Dragons of Kydon Kail’s ancient past, are unconfirmed, but there are certainly a great many monsters fled from lower and more civilized lands.
