Clan Ironstar was a dwarven clan whose realm, also referred to as Ironstar, was founded during the Age of Humanity, beneath Firstpeak, Secondpeak and Thirdpeak, also known as Ironstar Mountain, Northlook and Wyrmtongue.[1] While small, they were a very wealthy clan, renowned as masterful smiths who had mastered the art of imbuing mundane items with arcane enhancements, and held the formula for the creation of darksteel secret for thousands of years.[4]

The clan sign was a white four-pointed star on top of a black anvil.[3]

ActivitiesEdit

After abandonment of their realm, Ironstar dwarves could still be found in Evereska, Mintarn, or below Mount Helimbrar. They were alleged to have changed their identities to conceal their status as members of the clan.[3]

PossessionsEdit

The dwarves constructed maces from their secret darksteel alloy called Ironstar maces.[5]

RelationshipsEdit

Ironstar regularly traded with gnomes and halflings via barges on the River Surbrin which ferried their goods to the Sword Coast for sale.[6]

HistoryEdit

The kingdom of Ironstar was founded in -2919 DR, beneath the eponymous Ironstar Mountain.[7]

In 207 DR,[1] the Ironstar realm was overwhelmed by orc invaders, and the clan fled south for the Fallen Kingdom, led by King Daurvos Frostbeard. Pursued by trolls and orcs, Frostbeard was slain at the Stone Bridge where Moradin appeared and drove the orcs back.[2] After abandonment, the realm could still be reached via Blingdenstone as of around 1370 DR. Around this time, it was occupied by the silver dragon Dargentum.[1]
