Zolanberg is a small city in the Seawall Mountains of Zilargo. It lies at the eastern end of an east-west Orien trade road and is one of two major stops for the Lightning Rail in Zilargo, the other being Korranberg.


The gnomish city of Zolanberg was built on the foundations of a Dhakaani city, whose name is lost to history. The city was abandoned by the hobgoblins during the Daelkyr War thousands of years ago. The gnomes occupied the abandoned city and gleaned the knowledge of magic, engineering and architecture that the Dhakaani had left behind to build the city that still exists there today.


Zolanberg is primarily a mining town. Its elevated location up in the Seawalls is not a coincidence, and there is a vast web of gem mines surrounding the city.

Dragonmarked HousesEdit

House Kundarak protects Zolanberg's gem inventory in a huge vault within the city. House Tharashk operates a significant operation in the city via the Prospector's Guild and recently built a large new facility. Other dragonmarked Houses also have a presence in Zolanberg, including Sivis message stations and, of course, the Orien Lightning Rail station.
