The Smouldercrown Mountains are a distinctive formation, only a few miles across but very tall, approximately 290 miles southeast of Ank'Harel[1] on the continent of Marquet.


The Smouldercrown Mountains are so named because their striking, jagged spire peaks form a round shape resembling a crown, only three or four miles across, between which is a small valley protected against the sandstorms of the desert. The soil in the valley is dried, cracked, and red.[2] The formation appears to be natural and seismically formed, but not from tectonic plates meeting.[3]

Notable locations


Within the valley is some sparse scrub brush and sporadic trees[6] that are adapted to survive extreme droughts. The trees are dry, with brown, withered leaves, yet they are fruit-bearing.[7]

Some sort of "desert duck" was summoned by Lionel at one point to help them answer some of their questions, though it was uncertain whether such a species is normally prevalent in the Rumedam Desert.[8]
