Adventures in Liam's imagination.
A large range of granite mountains, to the north of Brax, to the south of The Taiga, and occupying much of the continent are the rough region of the High Rhaenas. These are high, perilous peaks, dominated by unpleasant hill tribes, goblins, and dragons. People do manage to scrape a living out in the valleys, and some of the moutains are controlled by dwarves, not goblins. Stick to the roads and you should be fine, but don’t stray into the woods, or the higher mountain passes without being ready to fight.
