Dwarven Settlement of Illfern
The Dwarven Kingdom of Illfern is located inside a mountain on the edge of the Laughing Hollow. The kingdom was once part of a great alliance against the Minotaur Mage Alaxus, engaged in a Great War against his humanoid and undead forces. While Alaxus was defeated, the Kingdom of Illfern was sacked and abandoned during the war. It became lost to common knowledge until recently when a group of adventurers discovered a map to the gate and cleared out the dungeon, returning it to the Dwarven clan, Ironeater.
Currently it is a military outpost of the clan, but many Dwarven families are beginning to settle in the city. The dwarves and nearby elves of Laughing Hollow have formed an alliance in this dangerous land.
