Grandfather Mountain is the largest of all mountains in Arland and possibly all of the world of Akarra. It is the convergent peak of three distinct mountain chains; the Shield Mountains to the South, the Ice-Wall Mountains to the West and the Frost-Fang Mountains to the North. The three mountain chains converge to create the central peak of Grandfather mountain itself.

The dwarves of Arland have made Grandfather Mountain since they began recording their history and for several thousand years prior.


The Ancient Dwarven Kingdom of Khaz Zhavad  (Place of the Forge) is located in the heart of Grandfather Mountain.
