Located in the nation of Lastwall, Hammer Rock was the foundation of a dwarven structure, unfinished and abandoned for unknown reasons centuries before humanity moved into the region. The humans discovered the inscription “Hammer Rock” on the cornerstones and, after constructing a fort that took advantage of the dwarven foundation, named the fortification the same. Despite its whitewashed exterior, the fort looks squat and gloomy. However, being placed on a hill, the soldiers here overlook the Path River and enjoy a clear view into Ustalav's Hungry Mountains. Abundant small game animals and a grove of fruit-bearing trees make the location even more ideal. The ground occasionally makes loud cracking sounds, and there is little doubt that undiscovered dwarven tunnels run below the site.
It has recently been reported that moroi vampires may have taken up residence in the caves south of Hammer Rock.
