The town was founded by dwarves hundreds of years ago, and dwarven trappers and miners continue to dominate its population. It was named for the town's defense under former mayor Eliazar Taggun in 4502 AR, when its inhabitants fended off an orc assault by retreating to nearby caves and waging a guerrilla counteroffensive, then rebuilt the city with heavily defensible stone buildings.
Mining—particularly of silver—and trapping dominate the town's legal economy, though the extensive tunnels and secret mountain trails that surround it facilitate an extensive, lucrative smuggling operation with nearby Nidal.
