Amongst the crag and rock are a horde of gargoyles. They've managed to utilize the natural magical properties of most to everything here on Aeon, and can locate most to anything desired. Here you can purchase items with your Shards from them!
On the opposite side of the Volcano, where the lands are dead and dust, there is a strange expanse... Magic is unusable here, and the air seems as lifeless as the landscape. Square pillars jut from the ground, metal and rock, until you come to a sheer drop into blackness.
