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.
