Keeping the peace
Hammerfall mountain is East of Ashridge and covers about 30% of the Neutral zone. At its Southern most end sits the Dwarven fortress of ulol rovol and at the most northen end lies the City of Thieves.
The Mountain is home to very few settlements. Mostly mining towns or tribal encampments. Some passages are wide enough to march an army however these paths are renowned to shrink to no more than 5 feet wide rapidly. With so many transportation issues through the mountains it is clear why As to why Ashridge was set up as a staging ground for both sides and later a major trading hub for the Neutral Zone.
