Dharmon is one of the Six Cities of Exile. Famously described as "carved out of the living rock of Avernum," it is a city surrounded by stone, with a vigorous economy based on the mining, refining and smelting of ore.

History

Dharmon was one of the first settlements founded after the fledgeling Kingdom of Avernum built the Castle and secured the Great Cave from the slithzerikai. For a nation at war with practically no real weapons, mining iron and steel was a priority.

Because of the generally hazardous nature of life in the caves, this demand for metal continued even after the end of the First Slith War.

The pace of mining and smithing increased frenetically, though, during the Empire-Avernum War. The front lines of the war were just north of Dharmon, around Fort Saffron; not only were gross numbers of supplies needed to outfit the troops, but Dharmon was the closest city to the fighting.

During the Vahnatai Retribution, Dharmon was haunted by the Black Shades.
