石爪山脉Stonetalon Mountains 是位于北贫瘠之地以西,灰谷以南,凄凉之地以北的环形山脉。传说,这些山脉是鹰身人的故乡,但她们的数量随着该地区的混乱而减少了。石爪峰是山脉的最高峰,一直以来都是暗夜精灵牛头人的圣地。暗夜精灵曾经建造并维护了山顶的一个矿井和一片森林。但这片区域后来被一股邪恶势力攻击了山脉的南边森林稀少,不过还有一些稀少的植物呈点状分布,尤其是在巨木谷响风峭壁被多年来的不同阵营的滥砍滥伐破坏,留下的是充满烟尘的空气和被石油与垃圾污染的水源。暗夜精灵有几座要塞,牛头人在烈日石居有一个历史悠久的定居点,暗矛巨魔在南方有一个村庄玛拉卡金。联盟和部落在山脉的很多地方还有很多据点。山脉是狗头人、蜘蛛、鹰等生物的栖息地,焦炭谷延伸到了海边,分布着一些危险的黑龙和元素生物。

历史

从传统意义上来说,石爪山是牛头人和暗夜精灵之间的种族边界地带。这里一直都是两个种族的圣地,并且曾经一度作为不朽的先知麦迪文的居所。在第三次战争期间,人类兽人都在石爪山脉扎营。麦迪文在这里安排了萨尔和吉安娜的会面,并劝说两方面放下成见,团结抗敌。为了对抗燃烧军团,两个阵营暂时联合了起来。

魔兽世界

根据摩罗加尔的说法,石爪山脉下方埋藏着邪恶的事物[2]玛拉卡金的巨魔派遣部落的冒险者攻击石爪峰树妖丛林守护者烈日石居的牛头人和石爪峰的暗夜精灵派遣冒险者对付该地区的各种威胁。与此同时,狂风峭壁的菲兹克斯(Ziz Fizziks)试图打击风险投资公司在当地团队的心脏——麻风侏儒格雷苏(Gerenzo Wrenchwhistle)。在边缘地区的一个小营地里,凯拉·影矛(Kaela Shadowspear)和加克希姆·尘链(Gaxim Rustfizzle)在崎岖的峭壁上组织了联盟的反击力量,打击附近的地精入侵者和焦炭谷里的怪物。

大灾变

Cataclysm 本段文字所记述的内容来自魔兽世界:大地的裂变

死亡之翼引发大灾变之后,石爪山脉的几个地方发生了显著的变化。虽然焦炭谷的德鲁伊努力恢复当地的生态,但是一个巨大的熔岩山从它的南端冒了出来。石爪峰收到了古神爪牙的袭击,他们摧毁了土地,杀死了野生动物,腐蚀了塞纳留斯的子嗣。同事,石爪山脉也成为了联盟和部落战争的主要战场。督军克罗姆加展示了地狱咆哮领导下的部落的残忍,杀光了一群无辜的德鲁伊与他们的学生,只因为他们可能和联盟结盟。这件事为之后加尔鲁什毁灭塞拉摩埋下了伏笔。

长者莎瑞丝娜的说法,石爪山脉之下埋藏着古老的邪恶。

地理

石爪山脉位于位于卡里姆多中部,北部与灰谷森林相接,西南部通向凄凉之地,东南部通向贫瘠之地。石爪山脉南部和莫高雷接壤,但是无陆路可通。石爪山脉主峰海拔很高,被茂密的常青树所覆盖。然而随着海拔的降低,森林变得稀疏。风险投资公司部落的伐木进一步让森林变得稀疏,狂风峭壁周围有清晰的砍伐痕迹。历史上这里曾经是双足飞龙的筑巢地,但是现在部落的地精把这里挖得千疮百孔。战痕谷是联盟和部落交火的主要前线。焦痕谷,这里曾经是一个郁郁葱葱的美丽地区,现在是荒凉的充满了火元素黑龙的废墟。

石爪山没有地下城,也没有PVP战场。

Lands of Mystery

Stonetalon's peak remains verdant and lush, but much of the remainder of the region has been deforested or otherwise destroyed. Certain parts of the land are now the homes of elementals, harpies and other deadly creatures. The greatest danger to the peak, however, is from goblins — the Venture Company gradually destroys the remaining trees and takes the remaining resources from the earth. If this process continues, Stonetalon could soon become as much a wasteland as Desolace in the south or the Barrens in the east. Druids and shamans take a firm stand here, doing what they can to stop the destruction of nature, but the difficulties between the Alliance and the Horde prevent the night elves and the tauren from working together effectively to halt the goblin operations. Many of the tauren still hold the unrealistic hope that the Venture Company can be reasoned with, and this belief prevents progress.[5]

The primary source of activity here revolves around the goblins destroying the forest, but other opportunities for adventure exist in the mountains as well.[6]

History

The Stonetalon Mountains survived the Sundering, although the cataclysmic events forever altered the landscape, creating great canyons and valleys within the mountain ranges. The indigenous tauren created a camp south of Mirkfallon Lake, built upon ancient ley lines. It is perhaps due to these ley lines that the elementals are drawn to the area around Charred Vale. The arrival of the other races is a recent development. The goblins found the region an excellent place to harvest lumber and ore, and the majority of the modern night elf presence in the mountains exists simply to stop the continuing deforestation. While the night elves had settlements in the mountains in ancient times, only the druids remained there continuously over the years, resting safely in their barrow dens.[7][6]

The goblins of Stonetalon are among the finest engineers of their race, and their inventions have allowed them to remove massive chunks of the forest in a few short months. This endeavor draws ire from the night elves and tauren alike, who find the deforestation barbaric and dangerous. The night elves take shelter on Stonetalon Peak, maintaining that refuge with the help of dryads and keepers of the grove. While the majority of the tauren take a similar, defensive role, the Grimtotem tribe strikes back against the goblins. Rumors persist that the Grimtotems prepare to take extreme measures to rid the goblins from their land, including the use of Forsaken-made toxins. Clearly, if these toxins are misused, they could cause as much damage as the goblins.

For all the intelligence the goblins possess, they have yet to understand politics, and this is true on an internal level as well as with the outside world. The trade princes have recently caused problems for the Venture Company, and it is looking increasingly likely that the goblins will turn on each other soon.[5]

Recently, rumors have arisen about a massive series of tunnels beneath the peak, which served as the home for some kind of oracle or sage. The name Medivh has been mentioned, but the chances of him staying in the caverns here seem to be minimal — but still a possibility.[6]

A mysterious prophet emerged from the caverns beneath Stonetalon, claiming that the world must prepare itself for a new threat. The sage called for the extermination of the Forsaken, on the grounds that they will be the ones to usher in the next coming of the Burning Legion — and perhaps Sargeras himself. He sent heroes on a number of anti-Forsaken missions, but the heroes investigated the issue thoroughly, discovering that this "sage" was actually an agent of Balzannar, the brother of the Dreadlord Varimathras. Balzannar survived his "death" at his brother's hands, and has plotted his revenge against Sylvanas ever since — this sage was apparently just one small part of his plan.[6]

Geography

The Stonetalon Mountains lie along the western coast of Kalimdor, south of Ashenvale and north of Desolace and Mulgore. The most frequently used entrance to the mountains, however, is a path from the Barrens in the east. The mountains were at one time filled with lush forests, but the Venture Company's expeditions and mining operations changed much of the landscape to dusty, barren canyons and desolate cliffs. The only region of the mountains that retains its former splendor is the peak itself, which is protected by the night elves. There is a large river, the Bloodfury, as well as two large lakes, Mirkfallon and Cragpool.[7]

The goblin-dominated mountains have few major settlements, but the night elves, tauren, trolls and harpies each claim a small share of the land.[7]

Warcraft: The Roleplaying Game

The Stonetalon Mountains were once a low set of hills giving a gentle view to the ocean waves in the west. The Sundering that tore apart the world drove great sandstone cliffs and mountain peaks high in the air. Water from the eastern coast poured into the newly created chasms and gorges. With the aid of erosion from the Blackwolf River, the Stonetalon Mountains have expanded into a vast network of canyons and cliff openings that invites adventurers and beasts alike to explore the virgin lands. The Stonetalons rise in central Kalimdor, south of Ashenvale Forest and north of Desolace. The mountain range feeds into the bleak expanse of the Barrens to the east. The atmosphere of the Stonetalon Mountains can best be described as extreme. At the lower elevations it is windy, hot, and dry. It is a harsh place where food cannot grow and flash floods are commonplace in the early summer months. Moisture from the ocean builds up into huge rain clouds, but the towering peaks are too high for the clouds to pass inland. They crash against the mountains’ western side and pour massive sheets of water upon the slopes to run through narrow canyons and back into the ocean or into a valley to dry up in a marshy sink. When the weather turns to rain, the ground grows slick and gray. Walking on a slope or a cliff in the rain is treacherous — water seeps through the sandstone and threatens to send even careful travelers plummeting to their deaths. Oftentimes, when the clouds expel all their moisture, hot winds push them farther up the slope, surrounding the Stonetalon Peak in a shroud of thundering mist. An immediate feature any visitor notices — aside from the sheer cliffs and deep crevasses - is the constantly blowing wind. Sometimes a gentle breeze carries fresh air in from the ocean and other times a violent gale stirs up vicious dust devils or brings a storm in from the western mountains. The rugged mountains are home to many wild beasts and only a few civilized habitations. Hippogryphs roost near Mirkfallon Lake in cave complexes high on the slopes. Their nests are defended by large bramble hedgerows, making access nearly impossible without flying. Other creatures found throughout the mountains are striders, hyenas, kobolds, swoops, crag panthers, and even rock elementals and the rare sabertooth cat.

Further up the Stonetalon Peak, on its eastern side, are the chaotic lands of the wyverns and drakes. These ancient “flying lizards” have long been rivals for supremacy of the skies. Every once in a while, when other races threaten to interfere, the two will set aside their differences long enough to deal with the interlopers. Agents of the goblin-run Venture Company have also been sighted in the area, searching for potential tracts to deforest and streams of precious ore to plunder with their mining machines. The mountains are known for their Ill Winds. The winds whip through the Stonetalon Mountains with great force, slowing travelers' progress and throwing up clouds of grit and dust that can confuse the best sense of direction. Small and lightly built individuals have even been flung off a mountainside by a particularly forceful gust. The wind in Stonetalons seldom drops below moderate even on a calm day and can change from a steady breeze to a brutal windstorm without warning.[8]
