These great black basalt peaks form the eastern limits of the lands of Tarisato. The area is known for being rich with gemstones. Clans of mountain dwarves, hobgoblins and orcs dwell in isolated locales all hoping to find the cache of stones that will make them wealthy and powerful. Little open warfare occurs, as there is ample room between communities and the principal focus is mining. The topography is rugged and offers little else of value. Stone giants are also found in unusual numbers, as they like the stark, natural beauty undisturbed by habitation.
