Nestled amongst the crags, the monasteries of the dragonborn carry out their duties of self-discipline and self-fulfillment. Beneath, mixed settlements spread out towards the plains, harbouring those that do not wish for the secular life. The chill of high altitude keeps the community tight-knit and insular, with the occasional free soul tiring of the close-quarter living and venturing out to explore, discover and trade.
Think Himalayas, Tibet, fur and expertly crafted masonry. Discipline born from necessity, a hidden fire in every heart.
