Perched at the western end of Pangloss, the Red Mountains are an ancient mountain chain. Beneath the worn peaks the dwarves make their homes out of solid rock. While some of the dwarven clans make their homes topside, their strongholds are only located in the eastern valleys of the Red Mountains. The extensive passes and valleys of the chain are unexplored wilderness. Several subraces of giants, trolls, wyrm-kin, and troglodytes (among others) inhabit the unexplored lands. It is an old land that is almost unchanged since its creation.
As a people, the dwarves are extremely loyal to their families and to their gods. The high temples to Moradin, Kord, and Erathis are all located within dwarven cities or territory. Both humans and elves trade heavily for dwarven craftmanship, especially in metalworking and marble work. It is not uncommon to find a dwarf overseeing large construction and architecture projects for wealthy nobles.
The region is named for the redish glow that highlights all of the peaks at sunset each day. The dwarves say that when the gods finished crafting the land they celebrated with a giant bonfire and barbeque. The beauty and joy of their revelries were imprinted on the Red Mountains; the mountains continue to celebrate the joy of each finishing day with the glow of the gods perfection.
