MapBileddanul Mountains

This hilly and mountainous area once checked the northward expansion of the Orchish Empire. The Gimhak, home to area, had been here since the Horgon Era. They battled the Ageless Emperor and his "improved orcs". In their last great conflict, the Gimhak War (1490 - 1503), lands of the Gimhak fell to the Orchish Empire.

Bileddanul is dotted with thousands of caves, hundreds of dead mines, and dozens of ancient Gimhak ruins. Some of these places are the abodes of Bugbear tribes, wandering constructs that once defended Gimhak, Kobold tribes paying homage to Tiamat, sometimes a dragon or two, along with beasts and monsters. Before the Gimhak War, the area was kept free of such elements. Under new masters, the Bileddanul highlands have returned to their primitive origins, wild and frontier-like.

Bileddanul has a vast cave and tunnel network. In the southwest, these stretch beyond the mountains into the flooded tunnels nearing the Idrongrun Bog. South, a product of the Morath War, tunnels lead to under the Morath Forest. In the northeast, tunnels link up with those going under the hill forest of Hangath.

Coursing its way beneath these mountains is a mithril vein named Nâram-Zind. The entrance to the major mines tapping this vein is inside Tharam-Khâl. The Spirits of Gimhak, along with dwarven constructs, guard and haunt this area. As a result, the mithril of Nâram-Zind has not been mined since the fall of Gimhak (1306 HE - 1503).

At the northern tip of Bileddanul, overlooking Lake Boraresh, is the Amoral Plateau and Orchish Empire capital city of Gháshulg.
