A BRIEF HISTORY

The Ered Glos (The White mountains) have been settled for as long as man has walked the earth. At the beginning of the fifth age, the mountains were home to the Ursani, a tribe of Morrim who ruled all the plains south of the peaks. The mountains were scattered with their villages, tombs and strange ziggurats. This changed however with the coming of the Parzifans and the foundation of what would eventually become Rhutalath. The Parzifans settled the land on the north east side of the mountains, calling it Ronador, and quickly began to expand. Within centuries, the Ursani had been pushed all the way to the Wildlands of the west, and the westernmost peaks of the Ered glos.

In addition to the High Men of Ronador, The Ered Glos were also colonized by Dwarves from the southern mountains of Keledrakus. At first they established only one city, Kalam-Kuzanokiz (Dwarron), on the single mountain of Kazad-Ar. They eventually expanded, however, settling two smaller cities on the western edge of the mountains; Kalam-Grim and Kalam-Borza.

The last few centuries have changed the politics of the Ered Glos dramatically. Fleeing the destruction of his homeland, Alqador, Halan lead an exodus to the mountains, and here founded the beautiful and secret city of Salasia. In addition, the Daenor scourge which Halan detested managed to make its way south, and attacked Kalam-Grim and eventually Kallam-Borza. Both the cities fell, eventually being renamed Death-Pass and Snake-Spire respectively.
