Pirht is a dirt poor region with rocky barren moors suitable only for raising sheep or cattle. The land has long lain under the shadow of the Necromancers and Demon worshippers in Giblot city to the east, and at night or on misty days the spirits of undead souls roam the lands drinking the blood of anyone unfortunate enough to venture forth. Fortunately the moors are dotted with many stone circles called "Sarstans" meaning "Hard Stones" originating from prehistoric times. These stones have the ability to ward off evil spirits and every fortified human farm or settlement is located near or better yet, on such circles. The Necromancer who rules this region seems to hold no fear of the spirits and has his own ways of dealing with them.
The people of Pirht are dour and canny. They make excellent scouts and soldiers and many of them serve in the armies of the necromancers. The income they make provides for their families at home. It is said that Pirht has made a bargain with the Necromancers. Sons for Gold. Both sides honour the pact.
