Tales from Elrond
The Cliffkeep Mountains are a system of mountains located to the north of Sircurem and stretching toward the Sea of Moving Ice. The mountains are known for their treacherous conditions and the only communities of note are the Dwarven city of Kraghammer and Ulrich Monastery. Kraghammer has a prosperous trading relationship with Sircurem and there is steady traffic on a treacherous but well-established trade route between the two cities where most of the mountains’ dangers can be avoided. Those venturing off into the mountains on their own must be prepared to handle harsh terrain and weather conditions, as well as numerous monsters and denizens, such as Stone Giants and Orcs. The Goat Knights of Kraghammer are known to patrol the mountains, vanquishing monsters and helping those in need, but rarely do they range more than two days ride from the city.
