Prince Corellus Peaks
Named after the famous Remarian explorer, this collection of 4000-foot high ridges marks, along with the Fogcaps, the border between Calisia and Launhym. Both countries back up against the looming shoulders of these long, linear, and tree-covered crests, but contact between the two kingdoms is curtailed by the lack of passes through this wall of resistant sandstone. The Prince Corellus Peaks are nowhere near as high as the looming giants within the Worldspines, but steep slopes that rise 3,000 feet or more above the neighbouring valley, combined with the extensive deciduous covering and lack of passes, delay and discourage travel.
The two passes that skirt the Prince Corellus Peaks pass around its southern and northern flanks. The first parallels the River Ehth and is by far the more popular of the two. During the summer, the road through Gnarled Oak Gorge teems with caravans travelling between Caer Almagaish and Canacadea. At the narrowest point of the mist-shrouded Gnarled Oak Gorge, where the Prince Corellus Peaks and the Fogcaps seem to kiss across the River Ehth, can be found the Seifert Locks where the roaring torrent passes over mighty Seifert Falls and plummets more than 300 feet onto the Launhym delta plain. At base of the falls is the Glade of Tranquillity, a misty fairy ring of giant ferns and immense broken stones covered with cryptic writing. This peaceful glen beside and behind the waterfall is accessible only by a treacherous ledge that passes on moss-covered rocks behind the thunderous spray.
