The Aspodell Mountains form the western border between Andoran and its rival Cheliax. Unlike the Five Kings Mountains north of Andoran, the Aspodells are not a particularly tall range, but their highest peaks are known to reach above 9,000 feet. The mountains' rugged slopes form a substantial border between Andoran and Cheliax, with only one easy pass, the Aspodell Pass overlooked by the walled town of Piren's Bluff. Apart from this pass, the rest of the mountains are not seen as particularly important by either nation as they are lightly inhabited, monster-infested, and not known to hold significant mineral wealth.
