Hir Thurim is a crescent shaped island beyond the West edge of Vas Gilljor, a day or so off, and a few days from the Delvi Lowlands. Its surface is almost entirely mountainous, with thick, harsh spires rising from the sea, giving it an ominous appearance to ships that pass by; Its history is not much better. The island is a Dwarven enclave whose history stretches back from well beyond record for all but the Elves, known far and wide for its history with magic- or more infamously- for the cataclysm it unleashed onto the Delvi Lowlands. The cataclysm was a powerful wave of magic, a terrible product of the war between the two factions of Hir Thurim, their respective cities located on the northern (Derum) and southern (Mol Khilder) points.
