Wolanders

The Wolanders

The Wolander Mountains are a significant mountain range in the far northwestern reaches of the northern continent. The Port River runs between two of the snow-topped arms of the Wolanders, around which was built the large city of Juniper. Overlooking the valley, the castle of Duretile sits atop the southern arm, and the shunned black castle sits atop the northern arm.

The Wolanders extend at least one hundred miles east of Juniper. West of Juniper, they reach the sea. Nothing north or west of them (except the ocean) is mentioned in the Annals, so the Wolanders occupy the northwestern corner of the known map of the homeworld.

Shadows Linger[]

Except for a small advance team that was ferried to Juniper via flying carpet, the whole Black Company made the westward march across the Wolanders into Juniper in Shadows Linger.

Elmo and 70 other Black Company survivors of the Battle of Juniper departed the city on horseback, crossed the southern arm of the mountains, and then traveled southward along the ocean coast. The rest of the Company survivors had avoided the mountains altogether by sailing out of the Port River before Elmo's departure.
