The Purple Cloaks

Region: Sword Coast, Northern Amn

The Cloud Peaks are a small mountain range in west Faerun. The Cloud Peaks act as a natural border for northern Amn (although the Amnish town of Nashkel lies north of the range). The cloud peaks, although not a especially long mountain range, are very tall. The tallest mountain in the range is Mount Speartop which stands 4.5 km feet above sea level.
The Cloud Peaks are cold and treacherous but the well travelled Trade Way road is forced to cross them. Many dangerous creatures live in the mountains and the Cloud Peaks are well known to house several dragons.
