The middle layer of Ysgard, Muspelheim, is made from ribbons of floating earth, some continent-sized or larger. Here, though, the ground smokes and burns, earning this layer the name “Land of Fire.” It’s a hostile layer where even the ground is sharp volcanic rock. Most of Muspelheim has the fire-dominant trait. Muspelheim’s ground rolls toward a ridge of fiery mountains at the highest point. This range, called the Serpent Spine, is home to hundreds of clans of fire giants. Watchtowers and citadels defend the mountain passes against rival clans and unwanted visitors. The Spire is a towering, needle-thin citadel of dark stone in the midst of the Serpent Spine mountains. Devout fire giant maidens are said to inhabit the tower, serving as clerics of a mysterious intermediate deity of fire giants.
