Skirting The Dodgy Path
The Grey Towers
Mountain range extending south from the Lake of the Sky towards the Free Cities. Prior to the Tsurani invasion, the Grey Towers were home to a large population of Moredhel. During the first Riftwar, the Tsurani drove the Dark Elves further into the Northlands.
The Dwarves of the West under the banner of Dolgan Tagarson, of Tholin’s line, also call the Grey Towers home. There are mines, caverns, and ancient tunnels under the Grey Towers. Many were carved by the Dwarves as they dug for iron and gold. Some are natural, fashioned when the mountains were born. And still others were there when the Dwarven people first came to the Grey Towers, dug by only the gods know whom.
Mac Mordain Cadal is the one known (and navigable) passage that goes completely under the mountains. It comes out on the west side of the range a day’s march from the mountain pass road to Bordon, and on the East near Yabon. There are both dangers and wonders. The Mac Mordain Cadal is joined in some regions to the most ancient chambers deep below the Grey Towers. From the largest cavern, and with the aid of a Dwarven guide, Caldara can be reached in as little as two days.
