12.9.2 The Vashnar Mountains
The Vashnar mountain range is the spine of the Sapience continent. It runs along the western coast for a great distance, and then turns east, running until it hits the ocean on the eastern side. Thus, it forms an 'L' shape in which most of the known world is cradled. The Vashnar Mountains are an extremely treacherous place, by virtue of the aggressive animals and people that inhabit it. Many a person has fallen victim to the mountain lions that roam it seeking their dinners. Perhaps the most striking feature of the vast Vashnars are the Pillars of Heaven. This collection of mountain peaks in the western-central portion of the Vashnars rises as much as fifty percent higher than any peak outside of them. It is rumoured that the Gods themselves dwell in a miraculous Garden atop them, and that they are able to stand so high only by virtue of the support that the massive tree Yggdrasil provides.
