The mountains of the Tashalar are rich in gold and iron. Stone giants live in these mountains. They occasionally bargained knowledge of ore veins for dragon turtle meat. A Beshaban cult operated a gold mine in the western hills. Those convicted of serious crimes in the Tashalar toiled at hard labor and ran the gauntlet of deadly obstacle courses for the amusement of the Beshabans and their rich patrons. Sarixa sar Beshaba, a tiefling descendant of the goddess, rules the cult. Rumors abound that the Beshabans were using the mine as a cover for their search for Tyche's Deck. An artifact of the former goddess of luck, the placards were lost during a volcano eruption in the distant past.
