Mal Yaska (possibly derived from the Angarak word for "burning") is a major city within the Mallorean Empire. It is the center of the Mallorean Grolims, and the seat of power of Urvon, one of the Disciples of Torak.
The city was large, certainly, though not nearly so large as Mal Zeth. The walls were high and thick, surmounted by heavy battlements, and the towers rising inside were square and blocky. There was a kind of unrelieved ugliness about it, and it seemed to exude a brooding menace as if the eons of cruelty and blood lust had sunk into its very stones. From somewhere near the center of the city, the telltale black column of smoke rose into the air, and faintly, echoing across the plain with its huddled encampments of tightened refugees, he thought he could hear the sullen iron clang of the gong coming from the Temple of Torak. -- The Demon Lord of Karanda
