|"This place is indibnible. And dank."— Burley the Pow|
The Sunken Mountains were once the kingdom of the Dragons. When the dragons still flew, the mountains were not submerged. Ouster Will slew the son of Yurgen, king of the dragons, and claimed that it was accidental and that his son could be healed using the Ancient Stones. Yurgen and the other dragons dug and dug, and eventually they loosed two pebbles, the Holoré and Holoél. The digging caused the separation of Anniera form Dang, the displacement of the First Well, and the sinking of the Dragon Kingdom.
