A towering peak rising alone above the hilly central grasslands of Remera, Mount Olympus is – reputedly – the home of the gods, who watch the world beneath them from above the clouds. Many have tried to confirm this, climbing above the clouds in an effort to reach the celestial thrones, but none have returned, and few still brave the strange stairs found where the mountain reaches the clouds.
Strange structures dot the mountain, from an ancient, ruined village with strange statues at the mountain’s base to a pair of enormous bronze gates set into the side about halfway up, and the unusual petrified eggs not far from the Divine Stair, gathered in squat, blocky houses. Travelers in the area have been known to disappear without warning, never heard from again, and wizards report that elemental magic becomes increasingly unreliable the farther up the mountain one goes; powerful evocations have been known to generate entirely different types of energy than intended when cast near the petrified eggs, and even as far down as the bronze gates they are substantially stronger. A few intuitive sorcerers even claim to have been “taught” new spells by the mountain as they practiced there.
