Mithril Hall was once the greatest of the northen shield dwarf holds. Around 180 years ago, it fell to a shadow dragon named Shimmergloom, let loose from the shadow plane into Faerun when members of Clan Battlehammer dug too deeply in search of mithril. Shimmergloom slew most of the dwarves and took possesion of the hall along with his entourage of shadow monsters and duergar. Things weren’t set right until 1356DR, when Bruenor Battlehammer returned from Icewind Dale to slay Shimmergloom.
Buernor drove out the duergar and took control of the hall, proclaiming himslef the 8th king of Mithril Hall. Shield dwarves from all over the north, especially those from the Thunder blessing generation have marched to Buernor’s side to mine mithril and clear out the underdark beneath the hold. Mithral Hall’s resurgence has strengthened the Silver Marches by providing Silverymoon with a energetic sister city and staunch all in war.
