Apollon mountain peak sundial fane
Thousands of worn granite steps (4,732) wind round westerly the mountain leading ever steeper to its summit, the base and the apex terminus of the case of stairs on the north face. With seven gold flecked stairs the accent begins, finding a similar set of seven stairs every several hundred steps (357), eleven more times this pattern repeats (6 total sets are lower then 6 sets higher with a set of golden stairs lacking midway on the south face, a gap of 721 plain grey steps).

Upon attaining the heights facing south, the very pinnacle a sheared granite table 150' in diameter. Dominating the center of the tangential vertex of twelve faded golden circles stabs a translucent white conical spire of unknown material, 7' at the base rising 84'.
Hellenic Greek (Hyperborean nearest dialect) in weathered gold script set in the hewn-smooth stone, betwixt the intersections of gyres, twelve of the thirteen esoteric years (sans the 7th) circuit the middle with Apollo round the outer bands.

 Haha! Thanks!!
Forgot I mixed that critter together late last night (even forgot to add it to the other local mountain random encounter chart for (from?) which it was born!) until you mentioned it!

I believe everything is as ready as it can be for my crew...until we start gaming tomorrow and they decide to trailblaze somewhere I haven't given a spark of thought (as they did last week when midway through the Brittlestone Parapets they about-faced and trekked toward the mountaintop fane, ingrates!)...

ill probably repurpose this post for building upon whatever spring-harebrained goal they'll set themselves on...
