The Terror of Riltar
The Lost Men
"They broke from the Spine, and wandered from the land. Beneath them, they broke the plains with their heavy feet, where the trees and water grow and flow. Lost and wandered far, they longed to return, but there home was far beyond their sight. They settled anew, where they could see the sea, and their minds could wander free." – Old Fable, The Lost Men of the Spine
The Lost Men is a mountain range south west of Wanderer's way, and shields the Dark Forest from the rest of Riltar. Many say that without the Lost Men the Dark Forest long would have spread to cover all of Riltar. Thanks to its close proximity to the Dark Forest, and the near constant snow that resides on the mountain, the mountain range is incredibly hard to pass through. Massive creatures tend to reside on the mountain, and many individuals within the Explorer's Corp claim that giants roam the craggy mountains as well. Save for a single pass that runs through the mountains, its near impassable. The pass itself is dangerous in itself, though sellswords often offer protection to make it through. This pass leads straight to the large town of Dendenas, a town comprised almost entirely out of warriors that hunt and kill the beasts from the Dark Forest.
