Population: 100 humans, 100 fire giants, 300 hobgoblins.
Languages: Averoignian, Hobgoblin, Giant.
Coinage: Barter commonly used.

Government Type: Independent barony loosely allied with the Efreet Kingdom.

Important Figures: Coiger de Mory (Baron).
Flora and Fauna: The barony occupies one of the mountains in the Icereach Range near the Arch of Fire, extending both above and below its surface (especially below, in a vast complex of caves and tunnels where almost all of the dominion's hobgoblins and giants live). Given the extreme temperatures and the unforgiving weather of the region, few trees grow in the barony and fewer plants are able to flourish at all outside, while lichens and fungi abound in the caves. Monstrous wildlife consists of rocs, marauding dragons, red worms, fire salamanders, lava lizards, slimes and jellies, and even from the occasional phoenix that ventures over the mountain and inside the grottos. Mountain lions, panthers and wildcats are also frequent encounters, as well as rival bands of independent hill and stone giants.
