A mountain range that breaks down the middle of Aurelia's northern edge. The lands within and surrounding it are notorious for their desert landscape, incredible heat, dangerous wildlife, exotic flora, and horrible monstrosities. Anyone seeking to travel through these mountains prepare appropriately. As the natives would say, "Bring three jugs of water, and a fourth anyway." A dwarven city named Petricoria lies along the northern border with numerous villages and settlements surrounding it, all of them intent on mining the rich metals out of the earth that the mountains provide. The dwarves aren't the only creatures in the mountains, however. A clan of fire-breathing dragonborn who call themselves Dardendrian have lived in these mountains for as long as anyone can tell, and are consistently at war with the dwarves over territorial control. To make matters worse, fire giants and yuan-ti roam the mountains, making enemies out of all factions. Both warriors seeking to test their mettle and merchants wishing to strike it rich through the dwarve's ore venture to Petricoria, though not all make it.
Fauna & Flora

Other than the giants, yuan-ti, and dragonborn, these mountains are home to boars, coyotes, fire turtles, harpies, hyenas, snakes, and various reptilian and draconian creatures that take advantage of the cool cover that the mountains many cave systems provide.
