Serme Mountains

Sama suomeksi täällä!   The mountains running south to north roughly in the middle of the Southern Continent . This article is about the mountains as a geographical feature, for the inhabited highlands, see Yamenawa.


Yamenawa - Mountain Kingdom 2.1
  The Western slopes of the mountains have huge rivers, most notably the Silver Stream, whose valleys are densely populated by Faren farmers. In the north the Serme Mountains extend far to the sea, emerging out of it as the rugged Irin i heš 'Snake's Back' Islands. The Serme Mountains and Islands cause a rain shadow on the Eastern slopes of the Mountains, producing an arid wasteland. The eastern coast is an karst wasteland, the Pillar Mountains. Further inland the rock pillars give a way to the flat Great Plains dominated by nomad tribes.  

Climate & Demographics

The most of the northern highlands, Yamenawa, is controlled by the Aramacänten (Mountain kingdom). Despite being subtropical, the high peaks are frozen almost all year round, and the incoming monsoon winds in the winter create heavy snowfall that feeds the huge streams travelling down the slopes. The most of the inhabitants are either of Ara people or Sayal people.   The harsh Southern highlands are less suited for achriculture and the cities of the regoin rely heavily on the trade with the north. This area is mostly inhabited by smaller tribes of pastoralists and hunters who often attack any traders trying to travel accross the continent by land, meaning that there is little contact with the eastern side of the mountains.


The main tourist attraction in the region are the Áçäwal temples. Many people travel there even from the lowlands, to study, pray, and experince the calm of the landscape.
