Settlements in Glittering Spires
The Glittering Spires are a massive range of mountains found on the southern shore of The Yal Tengri, the Great Ice Sea. The folks that live in this Frostfell Region are quite tough and hardy.
This range of mountains along the edge of the Yal Tengri draws its name from the many glaciers that top the peaks. The southern reaches of the Glittering Spires contain some stopping places for caravans such as the Pleasant Valley Gateway Oasis. The human residents of this area refer to the mountains as the Hagga Shan. There is a Dwarven settlement in the mountains here. The Herlinga Clan arrived in this area in 943 TGR led by Ilsik Herlingson who brought them here from the Highlands of Terraguard.
Some of the oldest members of the clan remember the early days when Ilsik Herlingson first discovered the caverns of the Glittering Spires. The Herlinga still maintain many of the ways of their original homeland in the Highlands, although the clan is slowly becoming more oriental. Silk has become more common, along with exotic foods and spices of the east. The dwarves obtain these goods on their infrequent trips to the market at the Ni-Ko Oasis. To make the trip to the distant trading center, the Herlinga have taken to raising goats for carrying the ingots of tin. The goats are easier than mules or camels for the dwarves to manage and are hardy enough to survive on the slopes of the Glittering Spires.
Together with the Kora Shan, this range of steep, eternally snow-capped mountains divides the Endless Waste from the Horse Plains to the northeast. Cold winds from the Great Ice Sea blast the western slopes of the spires, stunting plant growth and making travel treacherous. The eastern foothills of the Glittering Spires are quite the opposite, as they merge into the heavily coniferous Umberwood. A small colony of gold dwarves, descendents of the Herlinga Clan of the nearby Shadowmount Peaks, mines the northern portion of the range. These dwarves also operate an outpost, selling dwarf-wrought weapons and armor to any who are able to pay in gold or gems. Their customers are nearly all Tuigan.
