Shadows of Sanctuary
Hril's Talons are a group of three sheer, rocky mountains which loom over the city of Greyreath, in the southern Shorn Highlands. They are often referred to as the Gate of the Highlands, as the south edge of the Highlands is bordered by a plateau which overlooks nigh untraversable cliffs and ridges, and the easiest path from Greyreath and the surrounding countryside into the Highlands is through these mountains' passes.
The western mountain is named Mt. Elke, the center mountain is named Mt. Helene, and the eastern mountain is named Mt. Freja. According to legend, each peak is named after a heroic champion who fought in the battle against Hril, the mythical dragon who was supposedly fallen by the greyreathan folk before their ascent to the surface. The cluster is named for its resemblance to a jagged, grasping claw.
