Gazetteer of Aerrunn
Eastern Barrier Mountains
The Eastern Barrier Mountains are a vast chain of nigh-impassable peaks that runs the length of Aquilia from far into The North Marches, south past The Imprisoned Sea. It is rumored that there are secret passes through the mountains into exotic and foreign lands. There are several surviving accounts from The Ancient Verundian Empire that speak of those passes and the lands beyond. The texts are outlawed by The Church of Alarond and anyone found with the forbidden texts in their possession is subject to excommunication by an Inquisitor.
No expeditions sent into the Mountains in recent memory have returned. One possible reason is that many tribes of evil humanoids have been pushed into the Mountains and the regions nearby by the ever expanding human empires.
