Eartheart

The structures of Eartheart are built into the sides of the East Rift, and the city extends far more in the vertical than the horizontal. The vertical “streets” that grace Eartheart’s expanse are a series of cunningly carved switchbacks. Small stairwells, suitable for a single creature at a time, are prevalent, but one immense switchback exterior stair connects the vertical portion of the city from top to bottom. The lower regions, untouched by the sun, glow with magical light, day and night. Those who don’t want to chance the stairs, and who have extra coin, can travel by griffon steeds, which are bred and stabled throughout the city. Its rulers are the Deep Lords, noble dwarves who lead great clans of warriors and artisans.

Eartheart became the capital of the gold dwarven settlements of the Great Rift after the collapse of the Underchasm destroyed their capital of Underhome in 1385 DR. The city was originally the religious centre of the gold dwarves, with the Temple of the Mordinsamman in the middle of the city. Now it serves that role as well as being the political centre and the heart of the realm of the gold dwarves.
