The Widow Harun
The Landrise is an escarpment that winds across The Shaar from north to south, four hundred feet high in some places and merely a gradual rise elsewhere. At such places it can be easily crossed by nomads and caravans.
The ruined city of Pelevaran is a series of cliff dwellings built into the Landrise near the outlet of The River Shaar. Elsewhere in the area, the nomads have traditionally used the cliffs for exposure burials, in which bodies are ‘interred’ by being placed on wooden poles projecting from the cliff at inaccessible spots.
The Landrise is discussed in more detail in Shining South and other Forgotten Realms core books and supplements. Please consult these for more information.
