Very insular folk live in the mountains and elevated plains that make up Taskal.
The gem (literaly) of Alormund. Rich in ores, minerals and jewels from huge subterraniant caverns supposedly dug by the natives or those that came before them*. The capital of Taskal lies on an ancient Dwarvern hold (chaos was imprisoned & released).
Many Taskal high lords speak dwarvish and a decent few leave Alormund to learn what they can of dwarven history without giving their reason for doing so.
The capital of Taskal has been made an independent region with administrative input from the High lord of Eridge (Eridge-Taskal Incident).
