The Middle Mountains are located on the north-west (upper-left corner).

The Middle Mountains are a mountain range in The Empire. The greater part of the mountains are located in Ostland, but some portions lie within the boundaries of Hochland and Middenland.

Covered by dense forests, the mountains are the home of several tribes of Forest Goblins and Beastmen. The imperial control over these mountains is tenuous at the best of times.
