A spire of red-grey rock jutting from a windswept plain of Razor Grass, Ea's Spire is one of few landmarks on the road from Wind's Canyon to Darkin. The spire marks the location of a low output spring, and is a place where tribesmen and hunters sometimes stop to take shelter or exchange news. The spring seeps into a scalloped stone basin, and then soaks into the soil. Small niches provide shelter, and faded rock paintings and votive offerings mark the people who pass by. The top of the spire is often used as a roost by Cudu'djell, who sometimes attack lone travellers visiting the spring.
Ettak's Hold was once a border post of Nammu. Long abandoned, it has recently been garisoned by Ur, whose soldiers are attempting to rebuild the old stone walls. So far, the troops of the hold have made no moves on the nearby Soletta, but it is only a matter of time.
