The tallest mountain in the Stolen Lands, Mount Branthlend rises from the landscape like a distinctively shaped monk's head. An incredible 5,400 feet tall, the mountain, also known as the Peak of Broken Promises, features a bare, knob-like pinnacle of white stone. The mountain grants its name to the range in which it is found: the Branthlend Mountains.
The mythos of the mountain is dominated by tales of Noarra, the great love of the barbarian lord Targran, who shouted curses from the peak of the mountain after the barbarian warlord took another woman as his queen. In that moment a great storm of fire and stone encompassed the peak of the mountain, and Noarra was said to be transformed into a great black dragon, who then rampaged across eastern Numeria. This myth attracts many travellers from throughout the land, drawn to the peak to cry out their own curses and oaths of vengeance.
