Abridged History of the 10th Age
The Valley of Stone
The region known as the Valley of Stone is located on the far side of the Whip Range from the Thurian Littoral. This area was once the heartland of Pernag, the kingdom of the Fire Giants. However, they have since retreated to the mountains proper (and their single valley further north). They left behind a great number of mines which are still functional and ruined buildings that serve as unfortunate roosting places for goblins, kobolds, orcs, and the ever-present slaves of Pernag, the wild ogres.
