Salbâth Gigunn, Teretellin

AliasesGigunn, Teretellin

During the time of Aslauthroa, the giants called this valley Gigunn. When Gilraen came to power, they gave the valley the Elven name Teretellin. They named it after the first son of House Glorfindel, founding family of the Gilraen Oligarchy. The name changed again in 1421. The Khazarkar Empire named it Salbâth after Salbâth Niziganâth, a Setarch that ruled the empire from 1156 - 1207.

When the Gilraen became subjects of the Khazarkar Empire, certain policies of the conquerors led to the flight of several thousand Kriavfahliil to this valley; the genesis of the Salbâth Insurgency (1422 - present) which still rages.

South of the Steirgar mountains, this valley is very rough terrain, broken with many narrow defiles and deep chasms. It is a dangerous place to travel with noxious gases potent enough to fell a fire giant. These colorless gases are continuously rising from cracks and fissures. In areas away from these, are dangerous predators like hell hounds and wyverns. Running wild and master-less, these hell hounds are descendants of those that escaped Hofthorm kennels.

In northern Salbâth, where th valley gives way to the mountains, there are dozen of Goliath tribes. They are generally unfriendly except when they need help. In the Cinazan Front, forced out of the area by the Horde of Chaos, they moved east into the towering evergreens of Teltenar.
