Sundermount is a mountain north of Kirkwall and part of the Vimmark mountain range.

Background[edit | edit source]

Sundermount is the tallest mountain in the Vimmarks and has a fearsome reputation. Legend says it was the site of a vicious battle where the ancient Tevinter Imperium and the elves of Arlathan unleashed horrors into the waking world, and creatures prowl the heights to this very day, unaware that the war for which they were summoned is long since over.

Flemeth, Hawke, and party at the Sundermount altar

The Sabrae clan of the Dalish elves led by their Keeper, Marethari have settled at its foot after losing their halla. A cave to the west of the camp is guarded by a creature from elven legends. A passage near the camp leads into the Deep Roads and the Abandoned Thaig. A winding path leads up the mountain through spider-infested caverns to a graveyard where elven elders came to sleep. An altar to Mythal stands on the edge of the cliff next to it. An ancient evil is bound atop Sundermount, whispering to the proud in their dreams.
