City, Population 12,440
Gald Kulumird, Gold Before the Mountain in Dwarven, rests at the foot of the Stout Hills, northeast of Riverthrough and north of the Nearwood. It is the gateway to the undermountain kingdom of Tul Kulamad. The city exists primarily beneath the mountain, but owing to its size it has spread out into the foothills in the surrounding area and is far from hidden.
The city is named for its ruler, the Dwarf-king Orewealth Goldbeard. It has been called “The Columned Hall” by most non-Dwarves for years, owing to a mispronounciation of Kulum, the mountain.
