Matawe (mah-tah-wei) - the Mountains
  • The Whisperers of the Gods refer to the mountains of Matawe as the Teeth of the Gods (Kerlra Hal'Gepe (CURL-rah hal'GEH-pei)). They only know of the southern tip and have no idea how far north it actually reaches.

Matawe is both a kingdom nestled in the mountains, and the name of the mountain range most commonly used. The people of Matawe are known as the Matawega.

Copper Tower

Goat's Valley

Sheep Grotto

The river that emerges from the grotto in this valley and cascades over the cliff in considered by some to be the source of the Hiperu.


Lesser Valleys

God's Mirror Lake

The location of the original temple dedicated to the Sun god and Moon god. The God's Mirror, a nearly perfectly circular lake, is one of the holiest sites in Matawe.

It was next to this lake that the brother Takalti and Tuthalya, brothers battling for the throne, met with their armies and battled. Tuthalya is executed on the steps of the temple. Afterwards this lake is considered cursed, and the temple abandoned.

The Whisperer's Temple

Kerlra Hal'Gepe

The temple found in the Sea of Sand at the foot of the mountains is considered sacred to the Whisperers. The origins of the temple are lost, and all that remain now are the crumbled remains of the outer walls, but some believe at one time the temple reached as high as the mountain peak and you could climb the spire to reach the gods.

Every twelve years the Gogepe come here to perform the Calendar Ceremony, but tribes will often visit throughout the rest of the years to perform sacred spells and curses.
