12.5.7 The Siroccian Mountains
The black Siroccian Mountains are a volcanic, albeit mainly dormant, range of tall, jagged peaks, lying in the east-central part of the continent. To the north is the Western Ithmia, while to the southwest, the Shamtota Hills gently fall away, eventually giving way to the Mhojave Desert. The Prelatorian Highway passes near to them on the northern side, and it is rumoured that the Raphaelan Highway has a secret path leading into them. The Siroccians are known to be populated by Dwarf-hating orcs, who drove out the clan of Dwarven miners who previously dwelled there. The Dwarves scattered, and had to bury the symbol of their clan: a great, jewelled axe, in their flight from the orcish hordes. The Siroccians are also famous for the purity of its ores, and many blacksmiths around the land would reward you for the ores found there.
