Arkan Feyr

(population: 21,000) Located under the Axehead Mountains, Arkan Feyr is a large dwarven city.

In the Second Age, the magnificent city of Arkan Feyr was built by the dwarves of the Inorlaiken Clan, and became the capital of Chokar; an ancient dwarven nation.

For centuries, a line of kings from the Inorlaiken Clan ruled from the great hall of this city, and sat upon the Greystone Chair. Under their leadership, Arkan Feyr become fabulously wealthy and its people prospered.

The Great Siege

The prosperity of the dwarves of Arkan Feyr did not go unnoticed by their goblin neighbors, and dark times came to the city when the War of Sorrows broke out in the year 409 of the Third Age.

In the year 470/3, a huge goblin army, led by led by Gordak the Merciless, laid siege to the city of Arkan Feyr, and its population was completely surrounded and cut off. King
Gorn Inorlaiken; the dwarven rule rat that time, refused all goblin demands for surrender.

The bitter stand-off lasted nearly sixty years, before a massive dwarven army arrived to break the siege and destroy the goblins. In the fateful year, 527/3, Gorn led the dwarves of Arkan Feyr against the goblins. A second dwarven army was led by ??

During the epic battle, Gorn killed Gordak in single combat before being slain himself.

As part of Orrek

After the War of Sorrows ended, the dwarves were weak and divided. King Algathor united all three independent dwarven nations into a new nation called "Orrek," which has endured until this very day.

Today, Arkan Feyr is an integral part of that nation, and its farthest eastern citadel. The city trades with the dwarves of Darôk via the High Road, and conducts much trade with the human settlement of Northam.
