In the west of the Eira-Gwyn Mountains, the jagged warped top of the volcano Tân Peak can be seen for miles around. Tân Peak is said to have come into being in Mishtoonian legend when the Ancient Red Dragon, Vrexal, was challenged into proving the strength of his flames by the Dwarf trickster god Jôc. Jôc challenged Vrexal to try to melt the snow from the top of Tân Peak, to prove how much mightier he was than nature itself. For days, Vrexal engulfed Tân Peak in flames, little knowing that Jôc had charmed the mountain top to resist the heat. Finally, after nearly a week of effort, Jôc finally let slip his prank to the Dragon, before promptly disappearing to avoid Vrexal’s wrath. Enraged beyond all reason, Vrexal tore the top of Tân Peak away with this teeth and claws, and melted the rock with his flames. Eventually his trail of destruction brought him to the heart of the mountain, where he collapsed and died from exhaustion, and from that day on Tân Peak became a volcano. The Dwarves of Mishtoon still believe that Vrexal’s malign spirit resides in the heart of Tân Peak, and the lava that erupts from the volcano is his dragon fire, exploding forth to try and catch Jôc in its path.
