Located in the ice-locked mountains of north Occid, Gralthar is the Graltharian Empire's capital. Most dwarves live in the fortress keep of Gralthar, a trade city that is protected by mighty stone walls; the product of fine dwarven architecture and solid building techniques. The city was an obvious choice for the base from which the dwarves held back the Hakarren Empire, which overran many of the southern dwarf cities during its height. Gralthar being the only stronghold to have never fallen to the Hakarren empire. In ancient times, these now abandoned and destroyed cities formed the Holy Dwarven Empire, and even now the people of Gralthar are a spiritual people, attributing their unsurpassed skills to the blessings of the gods.
Zharadan is the patron of Gralthar.
