Hagegraf is the capital city of the hryngars1 in Nar-Voth and is situated on the eastern end of the Long Walk, under the Five Kings Mountains of north-eastern Druma. The city's troops patrol the Long Walk, keeping it mostly clear of monsters and extracting tolls from travellers.2 The city is a place of never-ending, backbreaking work and hardship, as befits a place whose people are dedicated to the worship of the god of endless toil, Droskar.3

Geography

The city takes up the sides of an immense cavern, and resembles a massive arena enclosed by a circle of fortresses. Numerous large stalactites hang down from the cavern's ceiling, linked by a network of bridges; it is here that the city's nobility live.2

The city is home to the massive clock known as the Akrizoth Horologe. The engineering marvel is acclaimed as one of the wonders of the Darklands, and is a major tourist attraction.2

Inhabitants

All non-dwarves are welcome to visit the city—provided they can pay the entry tax of 10 gold pieces for each wagon. There is also a 20-gold-piece exit tax per person; those who attempt to leave without paying end up in the city's dungeons.2 As hryngars are known to be avid slavers, caravans full of creatures of all sorts leave on a regular basis for the chattel markets of Delvingulf, Sverspume,2 and Giratayn.4
