Return to Karak Goranthal
The Karak of the Poles
Karak is the Dwarven word for home but it also translates as city, or fortress, or hearth. The Karak is all of these. Each of the 4 surrounding mountains and the great Worlds Pole had been Dwarven Karak. These mountains had been transformed over time into underground cities, hundreds of clans working to gether to keep the KArak linked and active.
Karak Goranthal was the city most often interacted with by other races as Gilbar Harkhaz is the Southern-most gate into the Pole mountains. It was once a great fortress carved into the Cliffside with various defensive positions to protect it from the dangers of the Dargoth Plain. Trade expeditions from the fledgling nation known as Ruffenacht made daily visits to the Karak to offer items that were more difficult to come by underground in exchange for Dwarven steel and gold and gems.
