Into that Darkness Peering: A Tale of the Lonely Coast
The Orestone is a forlorn, windswept and wave‐lashed bare chunk of rock jutting out of the sea roughly 500 feet from the shore of Caer Syllan. Cliffs encompass three of its sides with the fourth comprising a series of high rock shelves rising out of the surrounding, treacherous waters.
Many vessels have come to grief on the Orestone; their wrecks litter the surrounding sea floor. When a ship strikes the Orestone, every boat‐owning peasant descends on the location, to both assist the unfortunate mariners and to recover as much cargo as possible.
