(For those who came in late: these “Gazetteer” entries are a tourist’s guide to a fantasy world I created in a previous series of posts, using this procedural system. You might want to check out the complete world map, or the other gazetteer posts. Enjoy!)
A wild stretch of the Northern mountains, known for its great natural beauty.
The Wistwilds are a very beautiful series of mountain ranges that lie between Mystimere, to the West, and the Trackless Peaks of Duzundigath, to the East.
The Wistwilds are virtually uninhabited, though patrols of Valirothian Hawkfolk can be sighted in the skies from time to time. Why are the Valirothians keeping an eye on this distant mountain range? That’s a closely kept secret…
Murdfane Temple – This ancient temple in the North-Western portion of the Wistwilds is devoted to dark gods. Many legends claim that it was here, centuries ago, that a woman named Juliana Darkhound invoked the aid of the dark powers and became the dreaded Dunmoss Witch.
