Helmogorn is a settlement of warforged, rogue modrons, constructs, halflings and a smattering of other humanoids. It was founded and first populated by constructs spawned by the Gear Monument. Helmogorn's halfling come from the Seven Vales of the Hairfoots. They came here to fill a gap in commerce, doing the more delicate work of crafting and other finer things that the warforged seemed incapable of doing.
The Ormartheon and thri-kreen slavers of the Great Expanse are the greatest threats to Helmogorn. These two enemies are constantly raiding and enslaving their people. Some of these slaves end up in the hands of unscrupulous halfling merchants who ship them off to distant lands where slavery is allowed.
