The Gaer Dûrlith

Gaer Dûrlith
(aka Kirithgal) (S. "Dark Ash Sea"). A plain of Gorgoroth lying south east and bounded by the Mulburz, Seregost and Nargoth Roads, it was riddled with dangerous pits that spilled out fire and ash, very few could survive a crossing of this plain, it was considered the deadliest part of Gorgoroth. The land itself had the appearance of a black desert due to the ash deposits. This area also saw the worst winds that could reach hurricane force. Any rain was quickly absorbed, so no plants or animals inhabit this area. Occasionally caravans from the slave mines in Ered Angûrath are forced to cross the region, but many are lost.
