About the Molten Crucible


Deep within the heart of the Azifix volcano lies Ebon Reach’s black market. The central element is a repurposed Stone Giant structure that pours the mountain’s molten contents into an adapted forge. Dubbed the Molten Crucible, the Reach syphons off the lifeblood of the earth to shape an endless supplies of tools and weapons for their dark enterprises. On this side of the isle, Ebon Reach has no peer in the mass quantity of metalworks they are able to construct and stockpile. One may suggest that they could rival Shalan’ti in their bounty of available metalworks.

The Crucible’s smiths are a fearsome bunch to conduct business with. Not only do they have the rigorous fortitude to withstand the furious heat, blinding ash, and choking vapor of an active volcano, but they are steadfastly stubborn to work unbent amongst the most cutthroat denizens of the jungle. Their hammers may sing out within the chambers of Ebon Reach, but their trade holds true regardless of who they ply them for.
