The Root of the World
Said by some to be the house to great treasures, Mount Charon is better known as a cursed place of death. Black lightning cascades in the atmosphere above it, casting an ominous pall over the area. Those who seek wealth there often disappear, returning as creatures of undeath. The black riders who have plagued the roads connecting the Spire Mountains are said to have descended from Mount Charon empty-handed, seeking wealth instead from the battered corpses of the travelers they have run down in the foothills.
