Remnants of a Slain God
The Hangman mountains is a large stretching mountain range that runs from the northern pole of Desolation to past the equator. From satellite imagery the shape is said to loosely resemble a noose. Inside this “Noose” is a city that is the only safe haven from the harsh equatorial weather named Refuge. It is a highly valuable location due to its isolation and has remnants of an old Vulk base still there.
The mountains are home to many rugged forms of flora and fauna, including wild Brevarr. There are some small settlements along the mountain, due to it cutting into a major trade route.
It is the most populated region on the planet due to the strange anomalies in various locations that allow for a lower gravity than the rest of the planet, often ranging from 1.2x to 1.5x Earth gravity, instead of 2x or more. The reasons for these anomalies is a mystery, as most scientists consider the region to dangerous and hostile to allow for extensive study.
