Exploring GauntlgrymD&D Insider Article
Jewel of the Delzoun Dwarves
By Bruce R. Cordell

Gauntlgrym is an ancient dwarven city, long lost and sealed away. Until now. According to a new account, a group of prospecting dwarves based in Neverwinter recently found the fabled city. To memorialize their fantastic discovery, the dwarves prepared a haunting treatise that touched on the city’s appearance and also told of a secret cult of firestarters, murderous avian humanoids, dwarf ghosts, and a buried primordial.

Silver halls and mithral doors,
Stone walls to seal the cavern,
Grander sights than e’er before,
In smithy, mine, and tavern.
—Ancient dwarven verse
