The Fire Giant Citadel
About two thirds of the way down the road of the dead, at the intersection of the major east-west highway through the Mountains of Doom, a large group of Fire Giants have constructed a huge citadel in the mountains. They will allow caravans travelling the east-west route safe passage for a price. Those travelling north to south, or those going east-west who refuse to pay tribute, will face the full attempt of the Fire Giants to kill them.
The Sword of Frey is rumored to be held within the Citadel.
