As with all fortresses, time took its toll on Steelhold. The plotting and tense negotiations eventually caused the fortress to snap, culminating in the utter destruction of the fortress by magma.
The Fall of SteelholdEdit
The Aftermath of SteelholdEdit
Almost as soon as the magma cooled, vegetation began to grow in the area surrounding Steelhold, covering it, as if to block out the evil of all of the fould deeds performed in the fortress. Rumors about the fortress began to spread, and with each retelling it drifted farther from the truth. In time, Steelhold fell into the realm of mythology, a story used to frighten young children, and many began to believe that the fortress had never existed.
Thus ends the known history of Steelhold... or so the dwarves thought.
