Situated high in the mountains to the northwest of Port Hope, this isolated town is the seat of a small dwarven kingdom ruled by His Majesty Gorthram VII, a venerable and well-respected leader among his people. King Gorthram's people work subterranean mines, uncovering ore, smelting it, and then working the resultant metals into fine weapons, armor, and tools. The manufactured goods of Merethrone are sought-after throughout the region and beyond, and make it one of Port Hope's most valued trading partners.
