The Kuldin Peaks were a small cluster of mountains in the country of Erlkazar at the border with Tethyr.[1][4]

GeographyEdit

The Kuldin Peaks fell within the borders of the barony of Carrelath in Erlkazar.[5] They were the middle peaks of the Iltkazar Range, which ran north to the Giant's Run Mountains and south to the Alimirs.[2][6]

The mountains were surrounded by foothills. The mountains themselves were steep and snow-covered for most of the year, and the tree line ended about half way up most of the peaks.[1]

Swimstar Creek began in these peaks, and its waters fed the Shining Stream, which in turn fed the River Ith.[7]

InhabitantsEdit

Shield dwarves were known to live in these mountains,[2] as were ogres, gnolls, and trolls.[8] The Starrock goblin tribe lived there also.[3]

The red dragon Charvekannathor laired in the Kuldin Peaks and kept them free from orcs.[9][10]

Kartak Spellseer, a powerful lich and member of the Twisted Rune lived in the Kuldin Peaks within an abandoned dwarven mine.[11]

Trails & BywaysEdit

The Kuldin Peaks were largely unexplored and no major road passed through them, because of how abruptly the peaks rose from among the foothills.[1] However, small trails and passes blazed by the dwarves of Shanatar were used by brave travelers and patrols or shepherds from Carrelath.[5]

HistoryEdit

Together with the Omlarandin Mountains, the Kuldin Peaks were the lands of the old sub-kingdom of Iltkazar, a part of Shanatar.[12] In ages past a great battle was fought here between giants and dwarves led by Turbold. Mount Turbold and Turbold Vale were named after this dwarven leader.[1]

The evil lich Kartak Spellseer, hid within the Kuldin Peaks after he was freed from his prison by Rysellan on the night before his execution for murdering fourteen people.[13]

In 1358 DR, a year-long war broke out between the Starrock goblins and the country of Erlkazar. The humans strangely made an alliance with a tribe of ogres, and the goblins were defeated.[3]
