The Aggrad Mountains are an extensive range that takes up a good portion of the northern tip of the continent of Marquet.[1]

Description[]

The Aggrad Mountains stretch for hundreds of miles between Bay of Gifts in the north and the Rumedam Desert to the south. The rocky range features deep chasms and caves inhabited by predators.[2] It is about a day-and-a-half's travel on foot from Ank'Harel.[3]

The mountains also border the northern edges of the Hellcatch Valley, and the small city of King's Fall is tucked against a southwestern part of the range.[4]

    Shammel is a bustling port city on the Bay of Gifts on the northeastern coast of Marquet situated at the base of the Aggrad Mountains. It is a major trade center[6] as well as a popular tourist destination, with swanky beach resorts like Dalen's Closet.[7][8]

History[]

The Vault of Shumas was a religious sanctuary from the beginning of the Age of Arcanum to just before the Calamity, when the people there were wiped out by members of another religion.[5] By the time Arkhan the Cruel investigated the Vault, it was a hidden temple with Abyssal script on its walls, and it was guarded by yuan-ti, a manticore, and an undead spirit calling herself "the caregiver". The caregiver watched over the sleeping children of Zehir "until our epoch begins." It was here that Arkhan found the Wreath of the Prism.[9]

Campaign One: Vox Machina[]

Vox Machina flew in the skyship Deera over the Aggrad Mountains on the way to Glintshore. The flight from Ank'Harel to the Bay of Gifts took five hours.[10]

After the one year hiatus of Vox Machina, the group decided to spent their Winter's Crest vacation together in Shammel. They stayed at a resort called "Dalen's Closet" located at the base of the mountains.[11] It is also the location of the offcial wedding of Percival de Rolo and Vex'ahlia.[12]

Campaign Three: Bells Hells[]

On their way to Bassuras aboard the skyship the Silver Sun, Bells Hells where able to see in a distance a small city tucked into the mountain range. Captain Xandis explained that the name of the city is King's Fall.[13]
