Vuori Mountains 

    The Vuori Mountains separate the central desert region from the fertile Terrezia Plain.  They cast a rain shadow over the desert to the east, blocking moist air from the west coast and trapping it over Terrezia.  The eastern side of this mountain range is arid, in stark contrast to the lush western slopes, which see a climate closer to Terrezia's.

    The eastern slopes are not traveled and generally unpopulated.  The rest of the mountain range is dotted with rivers, streams, and lakes, some of which drain to power mills in the farming villages of the Terrezia Plain.
