BLACK CLIFFS: WESTERN LANDS OF SESAMAR
The Black Cliffs and black sands stretch across the eastern side of the Western Lands, north of Kornas. There is a split in the cliffs and a twisting path that leads to the triple towers of Nithnamar.
This split offers an excellent defense for Nithnamar. Marching soldiers can only come through the pass in short rows, making it an excellent place to set up a defense.
The cliffs are near impossible to climb. The rock is black, thought from ancient volcanic activity, and made of limestone. The limestone gets wet from sea air, which makes it slick and can cause chunks to break off when climbing it.
