Hilly mountain range
|Hilly mountain range|
|Names||hilly mountain range, mountains, range of rolling mountainous hills|
Hilly mountain ranges are found to the southwest of Ankh-Morpork (the Morpork Mountains), far to the east of Ankh-Morpork (the Carrack Mountains) and an extensive range very far to the south of Ankh-Morpork along where the terrain no longer continues.
The short description of the room is "hilly mountain range".
On the map, it is referred to as "mountains".
In the part of the long description of a terrain room that describes which terrains are nearby, it shows up as "a range of rolling mountainous hills" when seen from the same terrain, and "a range of rolling mountainous hills" or the specific name of the mountain range when seen from a different terrain.
In the spring, temperatures range from at least ___ to ___ at night, and ___ to ___ during the day. The weather is ___.
In the summer, temperatures range from at least freezing cold to damn cold at night, and very chilly to cold during the day. The weather is ___.
In the autumn, temperatures range from at least damn cold to freezing cold at night, and very chilly to freezing cold during the day. The weather is often cloudy, sometimes with sleet or light to driving snow.
The following npcs are found in this terrain:
- Bears: adult black, brown, and grizzly bears and cubs
- Caladriuses ("pure white bird")
- Deer: does, bucks, and fawns
- Red Foxes: dog foxes and vixens
- Moon dragons
- Mountain lions
- Song thrushes
- Wolves, found alone (possibly only at night)
Of those, adult bears are sometimes aggressive (and can be whether or not there are cubs around), but do not pursue. Adventurous bear cubs may appear to be alone, but there is generally an adult nearby.
Birds are strictly diurnal and disappear during the night.
For the most part, they are surrounded by plains. The Morpork Mountains also have cabbage fields on their northeast edge, as do the Carrack Mountains all along their west edge. The Carrack Mountains join Skund Forest to the south, and the Ankh River goes through them, more or less bisecting them horizontally.
This type of terrain is only barely mountainous. That is to say, you can't journey through it, but climbing is not required to move between rooms, and the map command gives you a full map instead of the partial one you get in higher mountains.
