Kangjald is a massive lava stone castle overlooking the Foronir river. It was built by the same fire giants that created Krarthjar. Kangjald is built into a towering mountain of the Giant Steps. Five 500' tall chimneys are built into the fortress and mountain. Three of these chimneys are active, while the others are in ruins from disastrous chimney fires. The thick black smoke rising from these chimneys is visible from many miles away. These chimneys are used for numerous purposes, burning refuge, smelting, and cooking. The keep used to hold a devil worshiping cult dedicated to Dispater. The cult was wiped out when the devils they summoned turned on them. Today, the place is home to dozens of devils, thousands of hobgoblins, several blue dragons, and a couple hundred rebel Githirmil. The motley residents of this place trade in arms and do mercenary work for any power. The factions in the fortress often go to war and ally with each other to take out the weaker groups.

The headquarters of Dispaters Concubines is based out of Kangjald. In 959, an exploratory expedition out of Naram-Gunal went into the subterranean chambers of this place and were charmed. They became proselytizers of Dispater, spreading his influence back to Naram-Gunal and outward to Umahanbad's other holds.
