The Shrieking Chasm was a seemingly bottomless chasm located beneath the Howling Mountains in Relmaur, Laerakond.[1]


The sounds that emerged from the chasm were so terrible that many believed the Shrieking Chasm was the prison of a mad primordial who betrayed its kin to the gods during the Dawn War. The inhabitants of Relmaur preferred to avoid the chasm for that reason.[1]
