Overview

These ancient mountains derive their nickname, the Malachite Heights, from the abundance of malachite deposits rather than any visual resemblance to this dark ore. It is rumored that the true origin of this name is due to the fact that these hills once served as the last bastion for the dark elves before they were driven underground a dozen millennia ago. Regardless, lush greenery throughout the year and temperatures are mild even at the highest elevations.

Dwarves and gnomes have mined copper from this area as far back as either race can remember. For centuries the world’s finest bronze came from the Dashahns. Although plentiful in copper, tin, lead and zinc, the scarcity of iron, gold and platinum has resulted in a steady decrease in the dwarven population as the most avaricious abandon their ancient homes in search of greater wealth. Today fewer than 15,000 still dwell here. Human miners or gnomes now occupy many of the former dwarven citadels, the latter having closer ties to the land itself. The low foothills are home to both gnomes and men.
