Hearthstone is one of the countries neighboring Gransys. Like Gransys, Voldoa and Meloire, it is part of an alliance forged by an undisclosed amount of countries to provide aid whenever a dragon attacks.
Hearthstone is ruled by a man known as Grende Hearthstone. It also has various lords, ladies and knights, such as Mercedes Marten. The powerbase of Hearthstone is, as with all of the kingdoms of Dragon's Dogma, patriarchal in nature. This is reflected by the presence of Mercedes in Gransys, as her father did not want to send either of his sons to combat the Wyrm.
It seems as if the people of Hearthstone are well-accustomed to ale and wine, with even the traditionally more reticent Hearthstone women being able to drink any Gransys soldier under the table.
If Nettie's grasp of geography is sound, Hearthstone is in the northern region of the world :
- "But speak of the northlands... I hear Ser Mercedes has come to Gran Soren. Last daughter of the Lord of Hearthstone."
