World's Edge Mountains
The World’s Edge Mountains are the greatest range of mountains in the world, stretching out from the northern portion of the Old World and extending into the Southlands. Thus, they form a natural barrier between the Old World and the Dark Lands. In the distant past, the World’s Edge Mountains were at the heart of the great Dwarfen Empire of ancient days, and even now, many great Dwarfen holds and fortresses may be found amidst this towering range of peaks.
The World’s Edge Mountain, is considered the largest Mountain ranges in the whole world. The mountains reaches from the most northern parts of the Empire and Kislev, to as far south as the jungles of the Southland. The whole mountain range is said to be the main barrier for any race to cross if they are to invade the lands of the west, such as the Old World, and Araby. It is also the strongest barrier for the Greenskin race of the Darklands and beyond from invading the lands of the Empire, but much of it is due to the stout and valiant defence of the Dwarven Empire of Karaz Ankor. It is said that the Dwarves empire reached the entirety of the whole mountain range, from the most southern hold of Karak Zorn, to the lost northern hold of Karak Dum. The first Dwarven settlement started in the South where Karak Zorn being said to be the first, then they followed the vein of minerals all the way to the mountains bordering the current Empire.
The mountain is also said to split into several smaller ranges that branch out of the Mountain Range, to that of the Black Mountains, that acts as the Empires southern Borders to the Border Prince, and the Grey Mountain that acts as the Western Border that seperates the lands of Bretonnia and The Empire. The range continues on more north until it splits in the lands of Norsca, and the other connecting to the Mountains of Mourn .
