A Spirit of the Mountain is a war-form adopted by the geomantic animus of one of Hysh’s great peaks. The strength of the realm itself is theirs to wield, but though their hammers can crush walls and reduce enemies to bloody smears, it is their wisdom these spirits are most revered for - ponderous as it can be.
