Mistledale Mount takes its name from the local legend that on a clear day, one can see the smoke rising from the hearth fires in distant Ashabenford, the seat of Mistledale, from it. This region has seen a number of small fires and sporadic clearings and lumbering. It provides an excellent view of the crossroads of Shadowdale as well.
The burned area at the base of the mount marks the death of Sylune six winters ago at the hands of a red dragon. The beast was slain in the battle, but Sylune "died Aencar's death" -- perished while killing her opponent. While other fires and clearings have been overgrown quickly, this region remains bare and blackened.
