In a high valley nestled within the mountains surrounding the Molten Scar, on the border of the Shifting Expanse, the Hidden Dominion of Esgalnor can be found…if you know the way.

Following a path around rivers of lava, upwards into clouds of ash, and through deep tunnels of granite, there suddenly appears a rare sight in the Ashfall Waste: a forest. Thick with golden deciduous trees and dripping with fragrant flowers, the entire valley seems to have a climate all its own. A wide, level road paved of rhyolite winds through the valley forest to the first sign of civilization.

Elaborate tents and caravans of desert nomads take residence before a towering wall of granite that bisects the valley. The nomads are some of the few regular visitors to Esgalnor, trading for precious gems and metals to create the intricate jewelry they are so famous for selling across Sornieth.

Through the wrought gold and steel gate is the city of Esgalnor itself. Carved out of the mountainside are multi-storied, onion-domed buildings studded with mosaic tiles and gems that dazzle in the sunlight. Latticed windows draped with silks, terraced streets lined with ornamental trees, and the aroma of roast meats overwhelm all the senses. But all of this is an afterthought compared to the palace.

The entirety of the mountain behind the city proper has been carved into a grand palace that glows as though lit from within. Painted mosaic tiles are embedded into the facade, including the grandiose temple to the Flamecaller. Smoke filters out through openings leading to subterranean smithies and mines. Steam escapes through vents from the sulphuric hot springs in the royal baths. This is the home of the Queen of Esgalnor, Cuivíenor, and she welcomes you to her city.
