Mount Zogon is the sister comic to Zogonia, published in Dungeon Magazine. Set in the same campaign world as Zogonia (which is called Zogonia), it is a following of the life of Galeena, a female druid who lives in a dungeon carved into Zogonia's highest mountain; Mount Zogon.
Galeena graduated from Druid College with haste after poisoning a fellow druid; Barry Firfoot. She has an affiliation with mushrooms and fungi; she lives in a cavern filled with slimes, jellies, oozes and moulds and, instead of an animal companion, has a sentient talking mushroom named Mushroom.
She considers pixies to be annoying insects and stabbed one to death on her way to Mount Zogon after it heard her complaining about the abundance of pixies in the woods. She became so paranoid about the way the local Kobolds started worshipping her she almost decided to wipe them out. She has had a serious debate with Mushroom about whether or not her consuming sentient creatures such as Dwarves and Kobolds can actually be considered cannibalism (she reassured Mushroom that she would never eat it - but then finished by saying that it's poisonous).
She once dissolved an attacking Ghoul with a jet of Green Slime from her mouth, so she may be developing slime-based attack modes due to her association with such creatures. Her resistance to the effects of the various slimes and oozes she lives with have led her to finding a variety of unusual uses for them, such as using a jelly for a vibrating armchair, or bathing in a Slime Mould.

The comic follows the exploits of a trio of adventures, collectively called Domato's Delvers. The members are:
- Domato - human fighter and the leader of the Delvers. Carries a magical item called an Orb of Life. Of the Delvers, he has the greatest common sense- though he is not especially bright otherwise. He adventures less out of any actual desire to do so and more because he needs the treasure to pay for the expenses of A: bringing Dindil back to life and B: paying Kev's bartab and bail.
- Dindil - dwarven fighter, tends to die a lot. This is very annoying for Domato, who has to use his Orb of Life to resurrect him and the clerics charge several thousand gold pieces per charge placed in the Orb. Very fond of pie- once specifically requested a baker make him a boysenberry pie and, when it was cooked, sat down and ate the lot - even after discovering that the baker misheard him and baked him a poisonberry pie.
- Kev - human rogue. His actions throughout the comics imply that he is of Evil alignment- most likely the traditional "Neutral Evil" of a scummy rogue. He is lazy, self-absorbed and greedy, but is quite skilled with the various skills of a thief (picking locks and disarming traps primarily). He is also equally skilled at brutally murdering anything and anyone that sufficiently irks him, though he is so lazy he tends to sit on the sidelines when Domato and Dindil are fighting in dungeons. Much like Galeena, the protagonist of Mount Zogon, he hates gnomes - once kicking a gnome in the chin so hard he sent its head flying off its shoulders. His violent tendencies may be exaggerated by his fondness for smoking "hobgob pipeweed".
