Rangers of the North
The Hyajargsh are the mountains that comprise the southern arm of the Hithaeglir, the mountain range enclosing Angmar. It is spotted with ancient Dwarf-mines, some dating back to the Second
Age, when Durin’s Folk cut the Len Ered through the fells west of the Misty Mountains looking for mineral wealth. They found good copper and other metals at Carn Dûm, Baruk-Zigil, and a number of other locations, and reduced the numbers of the Orcs for many generations. In the Third Age, the Dwarves’ interest and strength in the region dwindled.
A half-dozen Cave-drakes, Colddrakes, and Land-drakes find that the caves of the Nan Angmar provide comfortable lairs. Fell Beasts, cousins to the Winged-drakes, prefer underground nests located at higher elevations; in the Misty Mountains, as in the Ered Luin, they fly by night to avoid the Great Eagles. Corlagon, a Winged-drake, is the greatest of these terrors.
