Bernorg is the capital and largest city of the dwarf realm Thraxon. It is where King Thorgood lives and reigns, and where Albrek once set out with hundreds of dwarves to find new mines with the Ring of Searching. It is about five days ride from the Great Arch and is in the heart of the Gray Mountains. Most of Thraxon is to the east and south of Benorg. The above-ground part of the city is fairly new. The underground portion is thousands of years old. Horses are allowed in the upper part, but not the lower part.
