Ever since the creation of the mountain range & peninsula, any permanent settlement is under risk of "The Curse of the Shadow Mountains". Historical records differ on what the curse actually is.
Observed phenomena related to the curse include entire population of a village disappear, leaving all the buildings behind.
Some think the curse extends to the sea south of the mountains, where entire fleets will go missing as they travel along the Lost Coast.
