The small island of High Peak is pretty much just a mountain rising out of the ocean. It is usually shrouded in fog, and is thus not well-known among sailors. The mountain itself is hollow, housing a secret organization called The Order of the Wheel that raises and trains young dragons to bear its Dragoons into combat. They dedicate themselves to the preservation of the dragon race, and they have at least one adult dragon on staff. The facility houses classrooms, training grounds for both humans and dragons, and a somewhat impressive library. When the crew of The Lady Jane helped the organization subdue a runaway dragon, the Guild of Dragoons was impressed with John’s fighting skills, and offered membership. John accepted, and was put through a series of tests before becoming a full-fledged member.
Outside of the facility the mountain is mostly forested, with plains to the lowland north and swampland to the lowland east. The west and south don’t have much lowland, and the mountain simply ends at rocky shores or cliffs. A troupe of low-land gorillas inhabit the plains to the north.
