Stone Bridge

Location

Stone Bridge is located along the River Dessarin in the Sumber Hills, connecting Red Larch and the Long Road to the High Forest.

Information

The bridge, which is also a temple to Moradin, is a single arch, two miles in length and 400 feet high, made of granite, roughly six paces wide, with no railings or barriers. It was originally built to connect the two halves of the realm of Besilmer, and was wide enough to cope with the broadest flow of the river in times of flooding.

History

The bridge was the site of a fight between Torhild Flametongue, founder of the dwarven realm of Besilmer, and a hill giant, resulting in Torhild’s death.

During the final days of the Ironstar clan of dwarven, their king, Daurvos Frostbeard, was cut down on the bridge by orcs while the clan was attempting to flee south. While mortally wounded, he cried to Moradin for aid and died. Moradin’s avatar, a 20 foot armored dwarf, appeared on the bridge, rallying the fleeing dwarves and leading them to victory over the orcs.
