Aurostan is a huge dwarven city located in Western Umbria. While there are other dwarven outposts and towns scattered throughout the mountainside, none rival Aurostan for size. It boasts a population of about 10,000, mostly dwarves and including the many Nords and other races that live in the outer segment.
While the dwarves of Aurostan are happy to do business with the Nords that live around them, they are still very slow to trust outsiders. Many Nords live in the outer portion of the city, located before the mighty gates to the underground, but very few non-dwarves dwell permanently on the interior of the mountain.
