|Founded||25 Lunar 905|
In the southern tracts of the Giant Steps is the Umahanbad capital Naram-Gunal. It was founded in 905 by expelled dwarves of the Clans region.
From the many conflicts with the Orchish Empire, it has grown to be a mighty bastion with many five rings of walls and 116 towers. Naram-Gunal is roughly 100 miles north of Sorrow Pass, a vale with a long history of wars. These conflicts usually spill over into the lands of the Umahanbad.
Over the last millennia, the Orchish Empire has besieged this place fifteen times. The other threats to the city are Gnoll and Jara out of the Northern Hordelands. From the north, the city is sometimes harassed by the troublesome frost giants of Nym-Zoedine.
Naram-Gunal has suffered a number of rebellions and civil strife, twice leading to temporary rule by its slaves.
Naram-Gunal is known for its great forges and armaments merchants. There warehouses are said to contain enough armor and weapons to outfit the entire civilian population of the Orchish Empire - more boast than truth. The first suit of Elem-Guard was made in this city.
The city's trade with Hells Womb goes by way of the Ragil then south down the Foronir river. When not at war, they trade east with the gnolls of Garormuk and in peaceful times on the other side of the Foronir with the Orchish Empire.
