the snow-capped mountain is named the Opossum Castle. opossum means white beast in the native language of the valley. some stories are told to children to frighten them; stories about half sized people who live in the castle on top of the mountain. they are covered in beautiful white hair. they hunt yeti and pray to shapes in the clouds. they rule close to the sky, closer to the gods and spirits than any of the valley's most prestigious shamans. the mountain sits like a precious jewel in the crown of the mountain range. this range that spans the continent.
