    Irongate Region Map Query

    I have downloaded the most recent update to the map of the Irongate region from Anna's truly excellent ghmaps.net. v9 of section 74 shows two dwarven settlements on the road to the Iron Hills.

    After checking the legend it looks as though these two places (I've seen called Dunlurr and Iolin) have the symbol for a large town and a large city (both dwarven).

    Now it makes perfect sense to me to have them there but I'm sure I've seen an older version where the populations weren't as large. It is very significant to have a dwarven city of 10,000-25,000 dwarves in the region.

    I'm completely sold on it, but can anyone offer any insights or thoughts on these two settlements? To my knowledge they are no mentioned in any canon or other material. Any thoughts?

    Previous descriptions of Irongate mention only Irongate and North Anchor as settlements. A dwarven city of at least 10,000 is a pretty big deal.

    You've got the Dwarven Kingdom of the Iron Hills knocking about that area IIRC - led by the magnificently named King Holgi Hirsute.

    I've always wondered how you can accurately reflect underground realms (and hence a 3D area) on a 2D map.
