Mount Pyre is an active volcano, high among the peaks of Mauristatia. From its side springs the River of Fire, that feeds the Crystal Lake, between Femphrey and Lendleland, bringing strange minerals to it. These react with the steaming lake and form crystals, which are mined by the people of Crystal City, at the source of Chalanna River.
Towards the top of the volcano, the landscape becomes nothing but black rocks and steaming volcanic vents. Steam rises from the ground. An incongruous carved archway of black rock is set into the side of the volcano - the entrance to the Fire Tunnels. At the heart of the mountain, hewn steps lead down to a vast chamber, at the centre of which lies a lake of boiling magma. This is the home of the Burning One, a massive Fire Elemental.
