12.6.14 Feinhorn Peak
Within the treacherous Gongen Mountains, Feinhorn Peak stands as the tallest mountain of the northern ranges. Its craggy, inhospitable slopes and sharp rocks have repelled many explorers time and time again, as few paths prove reliable or safe over it. Feinhorn Peak has even been abandoned by the fearless orc tribes of the Gongens. Atop the summit of Feinhorn Peak sits the awe-inspiring Inequedra, Tree of Existence, a golden tree so massive that it cannot even be seen in its entirety, as it vanishes into the upper reaches of the sky. A gathering of hardy norrjin men have been able to survive near its base, living by the religion they call the Faith of Inequedra. Beneath the Tree is the entrance to the Inner Feinhorn, a complicated series of tunnels dug out by the mythical ouroboros, Nysashgar. Nysashgar, who seeks to destroy the immortality of Inequedra, has stationed himself within an enormous cavern at the bottom of these tunnels, continually gnawing on the roots of the Tree and knowing nothing else. He has since spawned many smaller ouroboros, all of which roam these tunnels and seek to destroy the smaller roots that burrow deep into Feinhorn Peak. Its history is shrouded in mythical origin, with only a few recordings still existing today of the great battle between Inequedra and Nysashgar that was once waged, and is still waging.
