The Red Mountains of northwestern Varisia are technically part of the Kodar range, but are different enough in character that they are given a separate name. Located north of the Velashu River and west of the Lurkwood, they are some of the shortest of Varisia's highlands. The soil is often a dark red due to its rich iron deposits.
The mountains are mined by a few determined miners and used by a handful of herdsmen who often combine forces to fend off attacks by the violent barbarians of the Nolands. These attacks have become more frequent and organized of late, and the people of the Red Mountains are beginning to get worried. Past pleas for help have been answered as rangers and paladins regularly patrol the northern Varisian border but the recent upsurge has led the inhabitants of the Red Mountains to send delegations south for aid, including to Riddleport and the Order of the Nail Hellknights based in Magnimar.
