This dwarven stronghold is nestled high in the Darklands Mountains. A marvel typical of Galorian dwarven engineering. Travelers are greeted by a massive stone helmet, resting over the main gates into the city. The city supports itself as a trade hub for the various mining communities in the surrounding mountains, as well as boasting its own network of deep mines and great forges. Life in the Darklands is rough, one must survive the elements long before they can worry about raiders and bandits, as such the city guard and regional militia spend most of their resources providing protection from exotic wildlife and the constant surge of elemental attempting to return their mountain its natural state.
The primary language spoken within the city is Undercommon and Dwarven, with only a handful city council members, successful trades and officials begrudgingly speaking common to outsiders. The city itself has no government, it is run by a council of great families who’s wealth built the city. Anyone may speak at their council, provided they may pay the entrance fee. Other officials are hired by the council to maintain city function.
