Droskar's Crag

From PathfinderWiki

Droskar's Crag is an active volcano located in the Five Kings Range.1 The mountain consists of two primary peaks known as the Hammer and the Anvil. The Hammer reaches 28,822 feet in altitude, while the Anvil—which hosts the active crater known as Rovagug's Caldera—is 28,305 feet tall and grows by about one and a half feet per year. These heights make Droskar's Crag the tallest known active volcano on Golarion and the Five Kings Range's tallest mountain.2

Several rivers originate or are fed from glaciers on the Crag, including the Coldforge River (from the Coldforge glacier), the Slagiron River (from the Slagiron glacier), and the Goldmelt River (from the Gold glacier). The crag also hosts the East Gold, Sunset, Silver, Peakcrest, Eastrise, and Deaddrop glaciers.3

The volcano last erupted in 3980 AR in a massive explosion known as the Rending, which destroyed the capital of Tar Khadurrm at Jernashall4 and transformed the region. At the time Droskar's Crag was known as Torag's Crag; its name was changed after the Rending to reflect the more hostile nature of the volcano, since the evil dwarven god Droskar is the patron of endless toil and suffering. To date, it has shown no major activity, though the peaks constantly spew ash and smoke into the air as a constant reminder of the threat that exists beneath the snow-capped mountain.25
