Thane Modan (roughly translated as King City) is the capital of the Dwarven Kingdoms, and is also the largest, richest, and most affluent. Since the inception of the Dwarven Kingdoms millennia ago the king of Thane Modan is considered the High King and they hold the highest position on the Dwarven High Council. The current High King is Balrin Fireforge. The entrance is known to all dwarves and many non dwarves, the city’s previous kings guard the grand main entrance way. Thane Modan, unlike other dwarven cities, is so rich in commerce that it isnt rare to see gnomes halflings and humans trading inside the city, and to a lesser extent dragonborn and goliaths. Gnomes, however, are the only race besides dwarves who live within the city walls.
Thousands of years ago the location initially known as Drakk Duraz, which later became the city of Thane Modan was home to a great red dragon who was thought to guard an enormous treasure. After the dragon was slain the dwarves found that he wasnt guarding treasure but he was guarding an enormous deposit of precious metals and stones. Growing ever so quickly the city became the epicenter of the dwarven community.
