Before the Rinnear lost possession of the Gold Mountains to the Wembic orcs, a prospector named Breggorr swore he had found a mine that contained dwarven steel, in so pure a form that it would not need to be smelted. Breggorr further estimated that it would take about 200 dwarves ten years to mine the metal. Soon after this discovery, and before he could relate the exact location of the mine, Breggorr was captured by orcs while attempting to get back to the mine. They tortured him to death, but he never revealed the mine’s location. Dwarven steel has never been found naturally, and its component metals are not all found in the Gold Mountains. Most people believe the mine to be a myth.
