12.8.11 Mount Piraeus

A dominant peak in the Southern Vashnars, Mount Piraeus rises to the north of
Actar Valley. Twisting through the mountain, a series of caves houses a
settlement of reclusive cyclopes, led by their chieftain Arges. The culture of
the cyclopes is centred around defending against a perceived threat from the
outside world, a preoccupation that monopolises their way of life. Heavily
fortified due to this paranoia, the settlement is filled with a series of
rudimentary mechanical contraptions built by its inhabitants, including a
sewage system and a blade mill. Powering many of these inventions, the river
Eridanos flows from a spring high in the mountain, before plunging into the
valley to the south.
