Strumpktar was founded by dwarven colonists from Gimhak. They built the place on Gathol's tallest hill. The settlement was strategically important because the Sorrow Road passed through it and then headed upland into Grashakh. Traders going to and coming from distant lands would always stop to check out the dwarven goods of Strumpktar.
The massive ruined walls and towers of this dwarven city have faded little with time. The place held firm from attacks from the north and south for centuries. Strumpktar was founded by the dwarven clan of the same name. When the Iburakthal confederation was established, this city became the administrative capital for ten dwarven clans. During its heyday, Strumpktar traded iron and silver with the elves of Celebriän and finished goods with Paradomea.
