Thaxtharken was a mountain dwarf city founded by the dwarven nation of Thoradin. It was located inside the Khalkist Mountains, near Thorin. It was founded shortly after the resettling of Thoradin as a second manufacturing center. Near the city were lakes of lava that were used to provide heat for the forges and smelters. Many of the coins of Istar were minted in the city, as well as many of the weapons and armors of Thoradin.
