Fancy Bastard Scales of War
Solania may not be the tallest mountain in Celestia, but it is a forebidding peak all the same. The mountain reveals its severe character where the rocky slopes break from the evergreen forest blanketing its lower slopes. Sheer cliffs, jagged spurs, and treacherous ravines promise a difficult time to climbers, and the ascent is made worse by the unexpected plumes venting from the mountain’s interior. Steam clouds lift to join the everpresent mists concealing the mountain’s zenith, yet no matter how dense, light flashes through the murky haze, hinting at the wonders created at Moradin’s forge.
Solania, called Rainfather for the storms the dense clouds produce as well as the waterfalls spilling into rich mountain vales from the mountain’s dizzying heights, houses the god Moradin and his servants. Corridors and chambers riddle the mountain’s interior, some little more than crude caverns and others sumptuous halls built in the dwarven fashion. One could spend ten lifetimes exploring these chambers and never see them all, but what astonishing discoveries one might find in these endless passages pale compared to the innovation displayed in Torzak-Belgirn.
