Karbêl is southeast of Sahânzar. The highlands surrounding this geothermal wasteland are unusually shaped. They are twisted spires of rock which taper to jagged points. They are said to have been shaped like this from the passing of the Chaos Malestrom.
In the lower elevations above the geysers and hot pools are the kriavian elf ruins. These places once served as monasteries and villas for Herfarel's elven elite. Near the beginning of the Second Epoch, the Khazarkar Empire's came to this area. By this time, the occupants of the area had long since migrated south to Lambaril, away from Orondir's bullywug problem.
