The Elberwick Rise is a basalt shelf which rises out of the southern edge of the Darkmoon Vale. It becomes a plateau which stretches to the south, eventually covering most of Andoran. Much of the Arthfell Forest lies on top of the plateau. Before the cataclysm of The Rending the Rise rose much farther north, reaching all the way to the Five Kings Mountains but much of the northern area is now broken and irregular. Currently the Shire of Elberwick covers much of the Rise. The tower of Adamas rises out of the cliff shelf proper and a few miles away the town of Olfden sits on top of a short cliff section.
