Overview

Hibarnhvidar is the capital city of Forfedhdar, and lies in the Himineldar Shel. Hibarnhvidar is one of the cities in the Dwarven Kingdom of Kwarlog, which includes the Arncharn Shel to the north. Hibarnhvidar could also be considered the city of gates.

Play.net Description: According to Master Cartographer Benkero, Hibarnhvidar is a wonder of Dwarven engineering. Enormous waterwheels put the Segoltha River to work, providing fresh water and electric lighting throughout the city. However, these claims have not been verified, and Benkero has encountered difficulty in organizing and funding an expedition.

Landmarks

Hibarnhvidar is the city of gates. Upon entering the city from the Haalikshal Highway from the east, travelers enter the tower of Lewkar Awg, sitting astride the road to Hibarnhvidar. Next is the entrance to Hibarnhvidar itself, the Raven Gate, with twinned obsidian raven statues flanking it.

To the far northwest lies the unremarkable Northwestern Gate, leading out towards Kwarlog and Arid Steppe. On the road leading to the Gate you pass the elaborate Water-Wheel which powers much of the industry of the city.
