Ahlarkhem was a barony of Erlkazar encompassing the High Peaks and their evirons.[1]


Ahlarkhem Barony was the center of trade for the kingdom of Erlkazar. The barony contained nine villages, which thrived on farming, fishing, and mining. The troops here also were responsible for defending the country from the goblins of the Cloven Mountains.[1]


Ahlarkhem was the southeastern barony, neighbored by Tanistan to the west and Shalanar to the northwest. Shalane Lake and the Deepwash formed its northern border, and the High Peaks of the Cloven Mountains took up most of its southern territory.[4][1]

Flowing through the High Peaks toward the Deepwash, the Arglander River was located in this region. It only had a single crossing, the Shadebridge on the road from Duhlnarim to Saarlik. The Wintercloak River also ran through this barony.[1]


In 1370 DR, Lord Purdun "The Firefist" ruled Ahlarkhem. He was married to the king's sister, Princess Dijara.[1]
