The Gossamer Mountains are a huge mountain range that forms the western reaches of Shenmen where it meets Shokuro.
The Gossamer Mountains' most notorious residents are the jorogumos, predatory spider-women who haunt the mountain range's desolate peaks and valleys.1 Just as infamous are the Path Maidens, cursed undead that abandoned their faith in Pharasma at the moment of their deaths and now haunt the mountains in search of the living. Curiously, it seems that the Path Maidens and the jorogumo have some understanding with each other, or perhaps the jorogumo may have devised strategies for evading them.2
Shenmen's capital of Yin-Sichasi lies in the northern reaches of the Gossamer Mountains.3
