Party of Many Things
While a handful of other mountains dot the continent, these iron-rich peaks form the only true mountain range on Pharas. They are best known as the home of Pharas’ two major dwarven cities, Jarnkyn and Vedrkyn, as well as a large number of passageways that lead to the Underdark. While dwarves make up the majority of the Ironspine’s inhabitants, most races maintain mining operations in the region, with the notable exception of the reclusive elves.
Several of the mountains are known to be volcanic, although few are active. The most recent activity was in 971 Aum, when Mount Kala erupted and destroyed most of Keldawood, spewing ash and molten rock all the way to what is now called Ironfire Bay. The Keldawood remained a barren wasteland for nearly three decades, but after years of concentrated effort the druids of the Greenwalker Circle were able to restore it, and it is now once again a thriving forest.
