Kodar Mountains

Ascending the Kodar peaks

The Kodar Mountains, known to the Shoanti as the World's Roof,[1] are among the highest mountain ranges in the Inner Sea region.[2]

Geography

Located in the north of Avistan, they form the natural boundary between several nations. The extensive range forms the north and northwestern border of Varisia separating it from the Hold of Belkzen to the west and the Lands of the Linnorm Kings, Irrisen and the Realm of the Mammoth Lords to the north.[3]

Inhabitants

Few creatures call the Kodars their home, as only the toughest creatures can survive there. Known inhabitants include rocs, storm giants, dragons,[4] yeti,[5] crag spiders,[6] and wendigos.[7] On the eastern edge of the mountains, orcs of the Dead Eye tribe live in crude villages near the Brimstone Haruspex, while orcs of the Gutspear tribe live in caves.[8]

Places of Interest

The Kodar's isolation has helped foster rumors of fantastic locations hidden within the depths of the mountains.[4][9]
