The Dwarvish Mountain, sometimes known as the Dwarven Mountain, was a subterranean realm in the Outlands. It was the shared divine realm of Dugmaren Brightmantle, Dumathoin, and Vergadain, according to the Great Wheel cosmology.[1][3][4]

DescriptionEdit

The outside of the mountain, which was not considered part of the realm itself, was a dangerous and icy slope where few people ventured. The only settlement on the mountain was the human town of Ironridge, located next to the entrance to Vergadain's realm. It had a population of about 500 people, who traded with the realm's inhabitants and occasionally sought entrance to its halls.[1]

The underground realm epitomized the three greatest passions of the dwarven lifestyle: exploration, hard work, and revelry. Each aspect was most clearly manifest in its respective realm, with all three combined to provide its dwarf inhabitants with utmost happiness.[1]

CosmographyEdit

A portal in the city of Berronar's Side connected the realm of Erackinor in Solania to the Dwarvish Mountain.[5]

Notable LocationsEdit

  • Deepshaft Hall, realm of Dumathoin. A cold and dark realm of roughly dug tunnels and stale air. It was located close to the Caverns of Thought and a few unmarked tunnels connected to Ilsensine's realm.[6]
  • Soot Hall, realm of Dugmaren. It was filled with libraries and always bustling with activity.[7]
  • Strongale Hall, realm of Vergadain. A lively place of betting and gambling.[8]
