Terrah[3] is the home of the Earth Ashari, located in a bowl-like valley in the center of the Cliffkeep Mountains north of Kraghammer. The area experiences constant seismic activity, causing the ground to shake and shudder frequently, and sometimes causing the earth to spike upwards where two plates collide.[4]

Early in 810 PD, Keyleth visited Terrah to begin her Aramenté while Greyskull Keep was under construction.[5]

Society

The Earth Ashari are very secretive about the location of Terrah and warned Vox Machina not to tell anyone where they were.[6] They disrespect and mistrust residents of Kraghammer for their reckless mining, which caused countless deaths during the most recent eruption of the Terrah Rift and led to the collapse of an entire mountain.[7][2]

The Earth Ashari trade with Emon, exchanging precious and semi-precious stones from their rift for essential goods and, occasionally, protection from the creatures of the mountains.[1]

As with other Ashari, "Kaitiakè" is a traditional greeting among the Earth Ashari tribe.[8][9]

Demographics

Terrah is a village of 673 people in 812 PD, made up of humans (64%), dwarves (21%), and other races (15%).[10] Considering that genasi on Tal'Dorei are most common among the Ashari,[11] this presumably includes earth genasi. By 836 PD, the population had grown to 838, with the majority still being humans (61%) and dwarves (19%), but with a now significant amount of gnomes (5%).[1]
