The Black Feng Mountains are named this for the harsh black terrain that makes the hills look like they are recovering from a huge forest fire that wiped the majority of life from the peaks and valleys of the mountains. This color is from the natural type of diorite that dominates the mountain range and tinges the mountain black from all but the closest of distances.   Life in the black mountains are reduced to oasis groves of brilliant green trees and flowers that persist despite their surroundings, but the majority of the mountains remain lifeless and bare.

Flora and Fauna

Distinct in that anything that departs from the oasis’s must be prepared for the long haul, the animals and plants of the Black Fengs are balanced in careful food webs that sometimes depart from the usual thought of how they should act. With a number of the environments being warped around the presence of dominant predators or magical resources that bend the acceptability of the food web.

Geography

The mountains are large and treacherous, with many valleys and peaks clawing at the sky. With the establishment of Modern Trains routes through the Black Fengs, many survey teams discovered large networks of caverns inhabited by dragons and other apex predators that harvest many of the nearby food webs. This has caused issues with weaker stone causing the collapse of train tracks, but most have been checked for safety.

 

Natural Resources

Resources in the Black Fengs are few in number. However, many SosIwan mines have been established to dig into the mineral rich depths. As well, many spelunking groups have been working to explore and map the many tunnel systems below.
