Pathfinder: Legacy of Fire
This wide canyon runs from one side of the Brazen Peaks in the south to the other side in the north. It is deep and winding, with steep, rocky sides towering over the sandy floor. The wind howls and moans through the jagged fissures, particularly in the late spring and early fall, when the remnants of storms from the west break upon the Brazen Peaks. It can grow hot in the canyon at midday, when the sun shines down directly, and at night the temperatures plunge, but for much of the day it is cloaked in shadows and relatively cool. Once it formed a significant pass through the mountains, allowing travelers to avoid having to go eastward around Bronze Hook or to ford the Pale River, but with the decline in settlement and mining efforts in the region and the growth of gnoll activity the canyon has become decreasingly used by civilized travelers. Now the nomads of the region make the most frequent use of the pass, but even they tread swiftly, wary of attacks by beastmen or stranger creatures.
