The Sea Pass Peaks
The sea pass peaks are hone to the twin holds of ____ and ____. Between the two the dwarfs have absolute command over all passage and from this have built a massive trading empire. Virtually all see traffic between the east and west must travel through the pass, as to sail out around mount _____ is both too time consuming and too dangerous for most. While the dwarfs have only a small military fleet to police the pass, and ship almost nothing themselves they make a fortune in taxes and harbor fees. Most trade vessels choose to stop and conduct business in the harbor of _____ a massive natural cavern in Mount _____. This keeps voyages short, avoids extra fees for traveling completely through the pass, and perhaps most importantly ensures business is transacted safely, as the dwarfs heavily police all business in the harbor.
While mount ____ provides the harbor and handles the trade. Mount ____ appears prominently to be a military compound simply there to police the western side of the pass. Mount ____ does poses it’s own small harbor and supplies are regularly shipped between the two holds. It is a subject of no small speculation that the dwarves have carved a tunnel under the pass to connect the two holds, allowing for safer and more secretive movement between the two. If such a tunnel does exist it is a closely guarded secret, for even most dwarfs who call the holds home can not say for certain if such a pass does or doesn’t exist.
