In the Second Epoch, conflict with the Orchish Empire necessitated alliances with the area's stone giants and goliath. The alliance and later co-habitation took many years to forge, resulting in a federalist government in 1511. The remote location and natural defensive barriers of Bazandaggûl have long kept the Orchish Empire from overrunning this medium-sized city-state.
Bazandaggûl sits atop extensive silver mines. Many of the older and expended mines are frequently invaded by creatures of the Underdark, so keeps and fortifications rings the city's Underdark passages and chambers.
The most problematic foes of the Bazandaggûls are the Umahanbad, Tholamid's frost giant raiders and a few other petty giant holds in and around Nym-Zoedine. In times of peace, the city's merchants sell their wares to the Orchish Empire, Garormuk, and even to agents acting in behalf of Umahanbad.
