Du'ul Hiim, Draconic for Crown City, was founded by the kobold tribes of Sendaar Jusk. In 81 HE, it became the capital of Ashmerthoon. The city is spread across three mountains and into the interiors of them. Great spans link the different parts of the city. Many of the spans are supported by pockets of air that continually blow upward and are locked in place with powerful magic. These pockets of air are called airmotes.

In 2910 LE, a yellow dragon named Artang-Sund captured Du'ul Hiim, enslaving its kobold populace. They were then convineced to worship their new master like a god. Most needed no help, already convinced that he was. The more intelligent knew otherwise, for them Artang-Sund was just another vain egotistic greedy dragon.

Artang-Sund had his worshipers build him a vast temple-like citadel called Gevild. This place became an enormous structure where a dragon can move freely about on wing or on fours. It has colossal "sunning" decks and massive hallways and long chutes. Some chambers and caverns are so big that a dragon can turn full circuit while on the wing.

Artang-Sund was absent from Du'ul Hiim for years at a time. When he returned, he often brought back loot, ancient relics and oddities like airmotes. He had the kobolds use the airmotes to support great bridges and other floating structures. The greatest bridges crossed wide canyons and connected to neighboring mountains. They were so long that only the use of airmotes could keep them from falling apart.

In his last century, Artang-Sund could no longer fly and explore the world. Seeing that his end was coming, he divulged his great knowledge upon us and educated some of us in dragon sorcery.

- Conermorn, excerpt from the book "The Chronicles of Artang-Sund"

In the waning years of Bael Turath and Arkhosia, powerful sorcerers of Du'ul Hiim got together and cast a powerful dragon ritual spell. This resulted in the Third Dragon Wake (1575 HE - 1576 HE). This event sped the downfall of Bael Turath and Arkhosia and caused a bit of misfortune in the kobolds as dragons ran amok damaging property and causing thousands of Ashmerthoon casualties.
