The Middle Mountains
The Middle Mountains are the largest and most significant highland area inside The Empire. As well as being inhospitable, it contains unknown dangers and grim perils. Not even the dwarves have managed to develope a settlement here. However, it is the source of much gold, and there are always some prepared to risk their lives through the lure of great wealth. It is rumoured that the High Wizard of the Amber College makes his home in a cave in the Middle Mountains, that he shares with three wolves.
