These majestic and giant halls are cut into the Blue Mountains by the dwarves under the leadership of Thráin and Thorin. At the crest of the impressive stairs from Frerin's Court a visitor enters a section known as Thorin's Gates, with the hardened entrance into the halls. At this outdoor section a smaller door leads straight to the Festival Arena and Thorin's Hall Inn. Also outdoors and to the east are the Greenhouse with its farmlands, and a Skirmish camp.
Thorin's Hall provides all possible services, trainers and vendors. Its extensive crafting facilities includes forges, workbenches and an oven, but foremost there are the Metalsmith's Guild and the Weaponsmith's Guild. These halls also hosts the Blue Stone Garrison which is the lounge for members with Acquaintance standing with Thorin's Hall.

The Festival Arena
- "So Thráin and Thorin with what remained of their following...wandered in Eriador, until at last they made a home in exile in the east of the Ered Luin beyond the Lune." - The Return of the King, Appendix A, Part III Durin's Folk
- The great halls of Thorin, delved beneath the Ered Luin in western Middle-earth are amongst the greatest wonders of craftsmanship and building found anywhere in the world. It has been nearly 80 years since Thorin himself journeyed away from this Dwarf-mansion of soaring stone to reclaim his rightful place beneath Erebor, in his noble quest to Lonely Mountain to defeat the dragon Smaug (a well-documented adventure, indeed!). Though Thorin was never to return to this place, having fallen in the Battle of Five Armies after successfully reclaiming his throne, Thorin's Halls in the Blue Mountains remain a vibrant center of activity in the region. - lorebook
