And the Earth tried to spit her out
In the shade of the Wyrmsmoke mountains, an impossibly huge stone structure juts from the earth. From a distance, this structure resembles the head of a gargantuan screw. In fact this is the Dwarven Spiral of Olgendurn. Nearly 600 years ago, a severe earth quake caused the entire city to shift 100 feet upward, jutting out of the ground itself. Not long after the quake reaped untold damage to the city, a massive wave struck the city, drowning survivors in the lower city, where the Dwarven nobility dwelt. Thrown into chaos, the remaining dwarves contemplated abandoning the city. A minor house of stone-cutters known as the Kimrils refused to leave their home though, and rallied the citizenry to repair their broken city. When time came to re-establish a government, the Kimrils led the charge, and were ultimately declared to be the new royal family. To the high houses of Olgendurn, the Kimrils are looked upon as saviors of the city, but there are those who would say they were simply shrewd and cunning opportunists.

The district that was hit worst by the tsunami 600 years ago. Around 10, 000 souls returned to the stone that day. Most dwarves in Olgendurn consider the district to be haunted, and there is a considerable amount of evidence to suggest that’s the case. As such, the District sat largely empty for centuries, until the massive influx of Morgendash refugees forced the cobwebbed doors open.
