Orao’s Mountain

A non-descript mountain that is part of the chain of mountains located to the north of Mirabar, Orao’s Mountain is rumored to be the location where a powerful and evil primordial with an obsession for fire named Orao was entombed early after the birth of man on Elrond. Legends tell horrific stories of the death and destruction that Orao was responsible for, mostly caused by his loyal and fanatical followers. Eventually, many of the races, both good and evil, joined together to combat Orao and his army and their efforts lead to his magical entombment in this mountain. There, Orao remained powerless for many millennia until rumors started circulating that he had somehow been freed and was rebuilding his army of destruction. Fortunately, the famous ranger, Jerrak Kreene, and his paladin companion, Shabaskin Remorhaz, accompanied by a cleric of Lathandar and a cleric of Sune investigated and found these rumors to be true. They were eventually able to locate Orao in this mountain and face the still weakened primordial. They either ended his existence or re-entombed him (no knows for sure). No matter how it was done, the primordial’s power was broken and he has not plagued Elrond since.

While the exact mountain of Orao’s tomb has been well-documented by Jerrak and his companions, the entrance that leads to the interior chamber where Jerrak and his companions confronted the primordial has never been found. Some say that the entrance is hard to find because most of the mountain is covered in snow and ice, some say that Jerrak and his companions concealed it after their battle, but others claim that this mountain is not the mountain that Orao is actually entombed in.
