Quest of the Shape Shifters, Chapter 3 & 4 by Joel Weichs Levy and Daniel Olarnick
In the remote corner of Breaker Mountains, Castle Mist rises into the concealing clouds.
If any mortal should happen to pass nearby, they would see nothing except a vast mountain range.
Clouds and mist created by magical gems embedded within the mountains mystically cloak the castle.
Bands of Yetis practicing cannibalism, zombies, trolls, orcs, ogres and countless other sentient creatures claim the land as their own. All are mistaken. The mountains, the caves, the castles and the beings within it serve at the will of The Dragon.
Quest of the Shape Shifters, Chapter 5 by Joel Weichs Levy and Daniel Olarnick
They journeyed to the dark side of Breaker Mountains, where the Howler stuck his jeweled knife into a slit in the mountain’s wall, opening an entrance to his home cavern, illuminated by glowing crystals which had been crafted to light the pathway into the heart of the mountain.
They followed the Howler inside, “My humble dwelling, safeguarded by these gem stones from The Dragon’s prying eyes.”
