The Howling Peaks is a small island dominated by a large mountain with pathways trekking to the top; the summit of which, a sanctum was built atop it with a fancy temple. Beneath the summit lies an extension of the sanctum within the mountain. On the mountain side is a large wooden elevator shaft used for travel up the mountain. Around the mountain's base is a strongly fortified rampart, built to defend the mountain and the villages located by its snowy and autumn lands, which also compose the soil of the island, being filled with autumn leaves and small patches of trees.
