Agatheron's Points of Light
The Dawnforge Mountains
Defining the eastern edge of the Nentir Vale, the Dawnforge Mountains are higher and rockier than the western Cairngorm Peaks. While tribes of Orcs are not likely to come pouring over these mountains, they are no less dangerous. While Hammerfast is a point of civilization in these peaks, with a handful of other smaller settlements in the region, the Dawnforge Mountains are known to be home to dragons, smaller orc tribes. One legend even tells of a valley that winter never visits.
