The Dragon Spine Mountains collectively form a volcanic region within the High Elf Kingdom of Caledor made famous for the great beasts that dwell within. Upon the blazing black island at the very tail of the Dragon Spine sits the great shrine of Vaul, god of smiths.
The black slopes of the Dragon Spine Mountains of Caledor are often shrouded in steam from the many volcanic peaks of the region. The mountains' shoulders have been built up over many thousands of years by deposits brought up from the world's fiery core. According to Elven legends it was the very gods who dug deep beneath the earth's crust to find the secret gems and minerals that are concealed there. Today the mountain sides are studded with veins of wondrously coloured minerals, precious stones and metal ores, many found only in this part of the world.
These gems are prized by both Elf and Dwarf craftsmen, and many have magical and unusual natural properties. The Elves themselves do not mine for gems or minerals, but harvest the exposed slopes for stones loosened by erosion and by the occasional tremors that shake the mountains around Vaul's Anvil. This is the largest of the volcanic mountains of the range, the legendary seat of the Elven god of smiths. Under its steam-clad slopes can be found the world's sole vein of the metal known as ithilmar.
