The multi-peaked[1] Kolaar Mountain of Sanghelios is a centrally located stronghold in the State of Vadam. The mountain itself forms a part of Vadam Keep, the foot of the mountain comprising its lower levels. The distance between Vadam Keep at the foot of the mountain and Vadam harbor spans thirty miles.[1]


Kolaar Mountain is the bearer of the Vadam saga. In the stone room of Vadam Keep, deep within the mountain, the continuing Vadam saga is carved upon the walls. In times of war its hardened rock and an underground river running beneath it ensured the survival of Vadam and its citizens from its historic assailants.[1]

In 2535, Thel 'Vadam killed an elder named Koida 'Vadam for attempting to have him assassinated.[1]
