Description:
Home of Wind Reach – Mount Skyinarta was created during the Valterrian. A mighty volcano rose from within the Unforgiving mountain range spreading ash and smoke into the sky. The ash drifted along the wind and dropped across the landscape as people fled for their lives. Those that described the event say that lava came pouring out and the very ground thrust up like a fist shooting upward. Slowly the lava harden and the volcano made vents to stabilize the internal pressure for the past hundreds of years. Now Mount Skyinarta stands at 30,000 feet from the small fishing village of Thunder Bay. Basins, ice glaciers, streams, and natural caves pocketed the mountain, along with men and women who live within.

The easiest way to visit Mount Skyinarta is from Thunder Bay though the Sanikas Pass, to the base of the mountain. The pass is a winding uphill road to the Sanikas Gates which allows visitors to enter Wind Reach’s Inner Warrens. Though the pass is the easiest way to arrive at the mountain, some adventures have braved the climb of the surrounding Unforgiving Mountain Range. The surrounding mountains are harsh, filled with dangerous creatures and often fatal rock slides. However, as the mountains dip below the tree line, the line in which trees actually grow, goats and deer are plentiful. They are several rims, terraces and fall offs that have formed from the creation of Mount Skyinarta.

During the death of Sylir, it released epic proportions of divine Djed, changing the wildlife and people who were living along the coast. A small group of fishermen were exposed to the blast wave, and as the ash began to fall they made their way to sea side caves. For years they were underground and as they rose from the ashes, they were recognized by the divine and their ancestors were reincarnated into large eagles. For some reason the people of Inarta are often seen by the divine, while others seem to have a natural knack for magic.

Mod Note:
  • Feel free to use the location as a general description of the outside area. For those hunting or gathering, some creatures lurk in the darkness. For those climbing be careful of rock slides and poor handholds.
  • For moderator help pm your friendly local storyteller.
