Ur-barath (err-bar-oth)

Ur-barath is a naturally oily stone that forms near the Locksmehr River at the foot of the DragonSpine Mountains resembling a red flint. Loosely translated to red rivulet stone, it was mistranslated to blood ravine stone after the dwarves that discovered it fled back into the mountains. The word continued to be bastardized into bloodriven, the location of its origin endorsing the village of the same name. The stone itself has no special properties, but local folklore says it gives the wielder ungodly might in combat. It wasn't until recently that the stone was properly called ur-barath by the dwarves of Zul Logoth. Ur-barath is generally used to embellish weapons, armor, and jewelry in runic motifs.
