It is said, in elder days, that the ancient race buried their heroic dead here. Some of the hills are, indeed, hollow, houses for the still-living dead.

Further in, the hills break into rugged farmsteads. A hardy folk have settled this land, driving back the night terrors and coaxing a hard living from the salt-sewn soils. They chiefly farm fedeskin, a hardy grain that seems to thrive in the mineral-laden land. Fedeskin brews well to make the dark, hardy beer Blackleech Brew. A bracing drink famous to the region of Limlight.
