Environments Mountains

The Silent People are a mysterious, migratory race who have formed symbiotic relationships with the sentient mountains of the Realm of Ghur, such as the Beastgrave. During each hibernation period of the Realm of Ghur these beings gather up their greatest treasures and retreat to cells hidden deep within these mountains.[1a]

Overview

The Silent People are a race of migratory, insectoid people who have formed a strange symbiosis with the Beastgrave and other sentient mountains of the Realm of Ghur. During the hibernation periods that the Realm goes through they gather up their most prized possessions and retreat to cells hidden deep beneath the earth, where they can safely pupate and restore their forms.[1a]

Those that chose to hibernate within the safety of the amber deep within the Direchasm of the Beastgrave have been awoken prematurely, along with them mountain. The premature awakening has left them in a half-formed, larval stage and they must hide even as those that have invaded the Beastgrave steal their treasures.[1a]

Culture

The cave paintings and statuary found throughout the Beastgrave is attributed to these strange people. Those that hibernate within the Direchasm choose to store their belongings within small, tomb-like caverns that are adjoined to the larger passages of the Direchasm.[1a]
