The Chasm mountains are full of high peaks and seemingly bottomless crevices. These mountains form the northern border of main lands of the Anguis Imperium. When the Imperium settled this area, they found strange ruins and hidden fortresses throughout the mountains. Many of these areas are filled with deadly monsters and hidden secrets. Much of the secret lore of the wizards of the Anguis Imperium comes from these plundered strongholds. Rumor states that even more dangerous ruins, with greater secrets, lie undiscovered within the mountains. Many wizards and adventurers that intrude upon these mountains have never returned, either slain by horrible monsters or the deadly guardians of ancient strongholds.
