Relics in the Waste
Stone’s Throw is a city in North Atiar in Keszyd. Its name comes from its proximity to the Barrier Mountains to the west. It is one of the largest cities in the region, comparable only to Talech to the southeast. Unlike Talech, however, Stone’s Throw is run by a secular government. Stone’s Throw is ruled by a panel of representatives from legislative, mercantile, and military bodies, each of which has its own methods of selection.
Stone’s Throw’s economy is based primarily in gems and ores mined from the Barrier Mountains, as well as a thriving trade in relics. Due to its relative position to major routes of trade, such as the Ashen Valley, Stone’s Throw serves as a hub for relic traders coming in from the north and west, and naturally draws some traders from the east, as well, though some of these are taken in by Talech. Few merchants come from the south, due to the trip that would be required across the Smoldering Expanse.
