To the northeast of Cytheria lies the Stronghold of Helm, carved deep into a mountain by Dwarven engineers. Here the dwarves extract iron from the mountain and fashion it into items to trade with Cytheria and Kyrk.
Helm is ruled by King Taldur Orcbreaker, and is home to a great Temple of Moradin, the largest cathedral in Dyrik.
Helm’s residents have all the water they need thanks to an aqueduct system carrying water from underground springs. Despite this, Helm will not trade water to Cytheria or Kyrk, instead keeping a surplus supply and using clean water for forging – much to the consternation of the neighboring cities.
Helm is populated primarily by Dwarves and Gnomes.
