The Sunrise Mountains have their name because they lie in the east of Rashemen and thus always block the rising sun in the earliest hours. They are grand mountains with steep canyons and edges that are almost impassable at most places. Few people live here, although you might encounter a lone ranger or Vremyonni guarding the passes. Despite being a rough area that borders to the Endless Wastes, it is mostly clean of wandering monsters, kept away by the defensive magic of the Vremyonni.
The only part of the Sunrise Mountains that is easily accessible is the canyon that the Golden Way travels through. At the end of the Rashemi part of the Golden Way lies Citadel Rashemen, once a stronghold to stop invaders, but since the Tuigan Horde invaded all that is left are ruins invested with goblins.
