Quast is a small island that is formed on a meteorite that hit the ocean many centuries ago. Now, with the top layer of solid, pitch black rock cooled, is is populated by those seeking the riches inside, Star Steel. The veins of this precious and rare metal were created by the heat of entering the worlds atmosphere melting the patches of metal ore in the rock, when cooled minerals from the meteor were mixed with the cooled steel to create it’s unique shimmer and effects.
Star Steel is sought after by many people of many professions such as enchanters for the metal from Quast takes enchantments easier than most and those tinkerers who dabble in machinery and autonomous units use it in the creation of their war forged and mechanical pursuits.
Quest is a dangerous place. Although the surface has cooled, the core of the meteoric island still burns and steam escaping from under the rock often explodes through pressure, either tearing anyone unlucky enough to be caught to death or boiling them if caught in a active geyser of the scalding steam.
