The Giantspire Mountains were located on the snowy and rugged borders of Damara and Narfell.[1]


The mountains were north of the Rawlinswood in northeastern Faerûn.[1]

Roads and trailsEdit


Neither the Nar tribes nor the people from Damara occupied these lands. The peaks were held by hobgoblins, bugbears, and evil cloud giants.[1]


Around 1097 DR,[2] the hobgoblins of the Giantspire Mountains assaulted the newly formed Impiltur but were driven back by the might of Warcaptain Imphras of Lyrabar.[3]

In 1127 DR, Imphras' son, King Imbrar I, was lost in the mountains, while leading a campaign to eradicate the hobgoblin tribe.[4]

In 1372 DR, the hobgoblins of the Giantspires were led by King Kardobbik. To aid her king, Lady Farkattle animated the corpse of a very old deep dragon to instill fear in Kardobbik's subjects and intruders into his realm.[1]
