The city of Mîmig-Khâla is spread across a high mountain plateau bounded by four spires. Each of these spires, laced with iron and gold veins, are today called Arcanas Stakes. They got this name on 19 Temporal 921 HE. On this day, in the subterranean reaches beneath Mîmig-Khâla, the Stone Wardens linked four iron mines in a magical ward, stopping the machinations of Surtur's minions who were bent on creating a Temple to Surtur, a volcano directly under the city above. Since that time, the magical ward has deteriorated, bleeding arcane energy into the area around, it has turned much of iron deposits into what is called searamount.
