In the Dawn Era, a primordial lord was born in Cinazan. The birth of Geb caused a massive piece of Mevlvad to break free and float upward. The people of the Titan Empires named the vast rift Basskaff, and the sky-island above it was called Gurnskolf. When the Khazarkar Empire came to Cinazan in the Second Epoch, these areas were renamed to words in their language. This was done as a measure of Khazarkar cultural domination. Basskaff was renamed Izen'nâth and Gurnskolf was renamed Gindinâth.

The distance between the top of the rift and bottom of the landmass above it is about four miles (21,000'). Gindinâth is the largest earthmote on the world Bal-Kriav. It is a moored earthmote by sheer mass, no winds are strong enough to move it somewhere else.

Long before man and beast, a god was born here. He was given life with raw energies of Chaos and his body forged of earth, rock, iron, silver and other metals. When Geb was born, the earth was torn apart, leaving Gurnskolf, Basskaff, and the Kernsking Koils.

This sky-island is reachable by paths and roads that go up through the vine forest Kernsking Koils. Most paths require climbing, but they are often marked, sometimes mis-marked to leave a traveler lost or to the den of some predator. The main road is the Hloding. It is well-maintained, patrolled by Griddrir's giants.

The surface of this floating island has lakes, forests, hills, and a mountain range. The entire area is under control of cloud giants and storm giants. These groups frequently feud over the area. Also on Gindinâth are air motes and water motes of varying sizes. Griddrir's merchants trade small bottled air motes to those seeking luxury items. The air in these bottled motes is akin to breathing in pure oxygen. Some of the larger air motes are sold to the Orchish Empire, who use them for powering Kangrath's skyships.

The largest city on Gindinâth is Griddrir. During the Horgon Era, Gindinâth was the heart of an empire that ruled five millions subjects across a thousand miles in each direction. The remnants of this Titan Empire Aslauthroa are scattered across Cinazan and beneath. Griddrir, at the top of what they called Gurnskolf, is the last vestige of a once great empire.
