Mountains of Tela'Rusk
The Mountains of Tela’Rusk are harsh, inhospitable peaks that surround Bastarnae on three sides. For years they have isolated the country and provided it with natural defenses against the expansionist aims of bordering states. They are also rich in deposits of minerals and ore and these have helped boost Bastarnae’s economy on an international scale. The mountains are home to Humans, Dwarves, Minotaurs and Orcs in differing amounts, and while worship of the Holy Pentad is still observed, most residents are not as fervent as their neighbors in the lowlands.
