Glitterdelve MineEdit

Glitterdelve-mines

the main part of the mines

Its mine is huge, and is one of the biggest mines in Ehb. A lot before the events of Dungeon Siege the king wanted to improve the conditions in the mine so the first mages of the kingdom created a gigantic magical machine to assist in underground excavations for the construction of Castle Ehb. Elevators and conveyors drawn on belts and winches allowed miners and materials to move between levels with astonishing rapidity. Sluices running melted ice and snow down from Glacern provided fresh drinking water for the miners, and a medium in which gold could be separated from the rocky silts.

HistoryEdit

Tragedy struck the mines in the Great Blast of 943, when a buildup of explosive vapors touched off a chain reaction that buried many of the more valuable veins beneath tons of rock, and reduced the delving machine to a useless pile of scrap. Since that time, the circulation of air has been maintained by a series of magically powered fans. In many respects, the post-Blast generation of Glitterdelve miners had to reinvent the art of mining. Those who came to the Glitterdelve in search of the Kingdom's greatest source of wealth were often startled by the austerity of its camps. Aside from the base necessities of a smelting forge, mule trading barn, and the Coughing Jak Tavern, there were few permanent structures to be found.

In the decades since, little has changed in this insular community of rugged mountain-men, miners, and self-styled individualists. So long as gold still glitters in the seams of rock, and the Kingdom's tax collectors leave them with a coin to spend in the local tavern, they are content to be citizens of Ehb.


Events in Dungeon SiegeEdit

After the krug raided stonebridge, they went on to raid glitterdelve, they depopulated glitterdelve and the only known citizens of Glitterdelve after the attack are Gloern and his brother Torg, although there are probably more since Torg said he will gather the dwarfs to return to work. before Torg was saved the mines were filled with Krug Mine Worms, Rock Beasts, Darklings , and more. Glitterdelve pass which connects Glitterdelve and Stonebridge was destroyed and blocked by the Krug so the legion couldnt pass.
