With the purchase of the protection plan!The Feng Mountains, known to native sages as “The Mountains that Pierce the Sky”, known to modern minds as the home of the Remniscent Monarchy of SosIwa . A thousand years past the claiming of the landscapes by the renowned Raknar Feng: Claiming the Mountains, the formidable peaks stand almost unchanged by the civilization that has called them home. The Aarakocra and Goliath populations are still large and constantly bickering for space not claimed by the Dwarves or Dragons that have claimed territory there. The Mountains themselves are treacherous, with peaks that rise above the clouds and have snow even under the hot summer breath of The Fire Giant of the South . Countless rivers and streams flow down through the mountains, eventually pouring into various rivers or lakes like the Iwate Sea. For adventurous folk looking to explore the landscapes or find land to claim in the Feng Canyons cradled by the mountains, there are plenty of local guides to lead them through. Some more… Legitimate than others. However, even the best guides aren’t always able to escape the landslides, avalanches, fissures and other disturbances caused by the earthquakes that seem to constantly bash the area. Rarely are they disturbing to buildings, but the after effects are often deadly. Some old stories claim that the gods do battle underneath the mountains, those of The Knotted Snake reaching up to the surface world to take what they believe to be rightfully theirs. Due to these disturbances, few settlements mark the horizon. Apart from a number of guilds and monasteries that call the area home as a way to avoid the clutches and requirements of Government. None, however, quite as prominent as The DraKaise Battalion towering out of the canyons. Many patrols of the guilds and the Battalion itself can be seen wandering the lands watching the countless caves and striking down the monsters and dragons that seek to challenge them. Even after a millennia of living in the mountains, the mountains remain as mysterious as when Raknar Feng first looked down from the highest peaks and claimed them as his own.
GeographyThe Fengs are a massive mountain range that dominate the eastern portion of Ithungsida. With the insides carved out by the massive Feng Canyons, the mountains shield much of the Middling Plains from hellish winter storms that batter Renai. The peaks themselves are the highest on the continent, looking for all purposes like teeth reaching out towards the sky as if to bite at the gods themselves.
Flora and FaunaThe odd Bulette is known to inhabit the mountains, however, far more Giants, Dragons, and other monstrosities populate the towering hills of the Fengs. Deer, wolves and other types of general wildlife are common.
Natural ResourcesDue to the sheer size of the mountain range, within the Mountains, mines for most any mineral resource can be found. From massively active diamond mines, shafts cut through stone in search of precious metals, and a continuous export of quarried stone for construction purposes in other parts of Ithungsida. The millenia-old tradition of carving into the mountain for riches and rewards is well alive with the dwarves of SosIwa. The mountains are constantly dug into for more and they don’t seem to be letting up anytime soon.
