Ruler's Ridge was located in the northern Marching Mountains near Minthrux Vale and Bottle Falls, where the Two Falls River began. It was once called Calim's See. At that time, the mountain was some 500 feet taller. A great avalanche turned what used to be a large, conical mountain into a jagged-edged peak.
Calim's See was once the burial site of choice for the bakkals of Coramshan and the rulers of the first seven dynasties of Calimshan. After being mummified in the First Necropolis of Nykkar, the dead were carted up a road around the mountain and through a set of golden doors in a cliff-side.
The entrance to the tombs was lost to time, buried beneath rock and earth in −1990 DR, when a group of more than six djinn, efreet, and dao fought in the mountains in a battle that lasted months and led to the death of a noble dao. The magical battle cleft the mountain in two and shattered its peak, burying the entrance to the tombs and the road leading up to it.
