Yarhoon

Luthsurl of the Debatable Lands, from the Haeldar
to Glamryn Bay, Castlemourn is sundered by the
Yarhoon, a towering ridge offering unimaginable
wealth and danger. The golaunt, the most wellknown
danger of the Yarhoon, rule this region
and constantly raid the surrounding lands. They
call themselves the Aathur (meaning “foremost”
in the ancient Crown Tongue) and ultimately are
a matriarchal society ruled by the maeraedra, the
”mothers of the realm.” These withered crones
pass their decrees to the orlhaurlen (the overchief)
who rules over the haurlen, leaders of the main
family groups known as horndyn. Like most
golaunt leaders, Orlhaurlen Gorog Kairagh Lokhlar
is cunning and capable of iron self-control. An
accomplished warleader, he ruthlessly dispatches
any who show signs of defiance to his orders.
If you can get past the violence, you will see that
it is all very organized—thus, the frequent raids into
the Debatable Lands and Lyonar. These raids serve
as scouting missions, supply runs, pre-emptive
strikes, and warnings to all to not trespass on
Aathur territory. They seem to believe these shows
of force and prowess are necessary to dissuade
adventurers and prospectors from seeking the large
gems and rich veins of precious metals that abound
within the caverns riddling the Yarhoon.
The Yarhoon is an incredibly dangerous place,
even without the golaunt. Its dense, steamy
forests abound with dangerous plants and huge,
ferocious lizards. The deep caverns are home
to many subterranean monsters such as the
darraudan (cloakers) and the tauroon or “slitherers”
(troglodytes).
