Fall of the Frozen Empire
The Talinor Pass is located at the southern end of the Dugal Mountains. It is the primary southern trade route out of the Frozen Throne Military District. Control of the pass originally belong to the mountain dwarf kingdom of Irondeep, but was rested away during the Dugal Mountain Campaign.
The pass itself is a part road through the outlying hills, part gourge, and part dwarven wrought passage. The total travel time through the pass can take approximately a day due to it’s winding nature and the grade of some of the climb. Located approximately two thirds of the way south, at the smallest part of the road, the dwarves had built a passage through the mountain itself that was originally able to be closed and barricaded to control the pass, Gilden Hold.
In recent years it has become more of a statement of power then anything, as the gates have not been closed in over a generation. The manning of this gate is primarily dwarven guards, supplemented with an auxiliary unit from the Legion, the 18th Quad.
