The Dwarven City at Granite Pass has been growing rapidly of late.
The only convenient pass through the Thurval Mountains is Granite Pass, long ago claimed by the Dwarves of the Onyx Shield and Red Helm clans. They maintained a small citadel overlooking the pass as well as a bridge to cross the Sillins River.
But in the past five years, the size of the settlement around the citadel has exploded, and there are dwarves of at least a dozen clans to be found there now. Multiple mines have been cut into the faces of the mountains and the sounds of industry are ever present.
