Originally a mere fortress built by the dwarves of Merethrone to protect the most vulnerable approach to their capitol city, this village eventually grew beyond its militaristic origins to serve as a trade outlet for the somewhat xenophobic dwarves. Relatively few non-dwarves have either reason or desire to travel past the village that surrounds the central keep, given that to do so requires either a dangerous and difficult trek through the mountains, on paths barely wide enough to accommodate a pack mule, or an oppressive, days-long march along the Grand Delving, a monumental example of dwarven engineering which consists of a series of tunnels and fortified checkpoints, all devoid of natural light or fresh air.
