The Gwaelydd Peninsula is a land of forests and low hills. In the east, there are the Kharak Mountains. In the mountains, there are two dwarven cities. In the hills surrounding the mountains, there are human mining communities. More human communities stretch across the forested plains to the east of the mountains. The people of the Gwaelydd Peninsula are warriors and poets. The men are usually clean-shaven or moustached. The women are considered equal to men, with responsibility over the household. The Gaelic folk are fair skinned, but all hair and eye colours are common.
