Scarpdale is the name of a desert wasteland covering most of Lanshire, Havish. The area was ravaged during the First Age battles against the Seardluin and also furious battles between two rival drakes which seared the soil to a slag waste. The area is defined by an upland plateau, flat wastes and dead grass over solidified lava flows. Closer to the Storlain Mountains are sulfurous mudpots, steam geysers, and poisonous mineral pools. The area near the Storlain Mountains is known as the Stacks.
