In the World of Greyhawk campaign setting for the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game, the Lortmil Mountains are a mountain chain located in the central part of the Flanaess, forming the eastern border of the Sheldomar Valley.


The Lortmils are noted for their gem and precious metal deposits.


The Lortmils are home to many dwarves, gnomes, and halflings; human settlements are scattered throughout the hills as well, as are scattered flocks of aarakocras.

The Lortmils were once the home of considerable orcish and goblinoid settlements, but these were driven into the Pomarj during the Hateful Wars.

Hateful Wars[edit]

Common Year (CY) 510 completed the end of the Hateful Wars, a decades-long battle against many kinds of humanoids (orcs, goblins, hobgoblins, etc.) which drove them from the Lortmil Mountains. Having no other place to run, they fled to the Pomarj which was too weak and divided to resist the invading forces. Approximately seventy years later, the events in the Scourge of the Slavelords module took place, in the midst of these occupying humanoid forces.


Many dwarven kingdoms are known to inhabit the Lortmils, supplying aid to the Principality of Ulek.

Features and settlements[edit]

The hidden valley of Esmerin, home to a mixed community of tallfellow halflings and stone giants, is somewhere within the Lortmil Mountains as well.
