Thorin's Hall is a settlement located within the area of Thorin's Gate in Ered Luin. [13.8S, 103.2W]

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.

Thorin's Hall provides all possible services, trainers and vendors. Its extensive crafting facilities includes Superior Forges, 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; inside is found a Superior Workbench.

Notice: The settlement is basically set up by many smaller halls and sections. This page provides a summary but details are listed at the individual pages of the smaller sections. Useful services outside of these halls are found in Thorin's Gate and Frerin's Court.

See Thorin's Hall - The Forging Hall for more details.

The Forging Hall is found past the Maker's Hall, in the eastern wing of Thorin's Hall.

This hall is renowned throughout the Middle-earth for its Superior Forges, which it has not just one but several. These are impressive and visitors coming too close have been seen on fire. Aptly the hall hosts a Forge-master and a Relic-master, as well as a Vault-keeper, metalsmith and weaponsmith crafting NPCs. Here is also found the entrances for the Metalsmith's Guild Hall and the Weaponsmith's Guild Hall.

See Thorin's Hall Inn for more details.

Thorin's Hall Inn is located in the basement under the Hall of Kings.

From the Hall of Kings there are two tunnels going down: the western ramp runs down from the arc into the Hall of Merchants; the eastern ramp starts at the Maker's Hall behind "the library". However, coming from outdoors there is much quicker entrance (and exit) via the Festival Arena, straight to and from Thorin's Gates, by the door just at the outdoor mailbox next to Bogi Deepdelver. (Once in the Festival Arena, go through the doorway directly behind you.) How that architecture works is nothing a knowledgeable dwarf is permitted to speak of, but nevertheless does it work brilliantly.

From outdoors the quickest entrance is via the small door next to Bogi Deepdelver and through the Festival Arena. Otherwise there are two tunnels going down from the Maker's Hall and from the Hall of Merchants.

This is the natural tavern and place to hang out with for any dwarf visiting Thorin's Hall. This is the home for members of the Ale Association and once they have reached Acquaintance standing the may also access their private chambers through a door to the south-west.

The Ale Association

The Ale Association
See The Ale Association for more details.

The Ale Association is found in the basement of Thorin's Hall, entered via the Thorin's Hall Inn.

During festivals this ale loving club is bubbling and boiling with activities, whereof a considerable amount are aimed it undermining the Inn League's wild success. However, these usually noble dwarves of Thorin's Hall also provides some attractive rewards for those who manage to wind themselves through the quests and gain reputation *hic*

  • Reputation vendors and quests

The Festival Arena

The Festival Arena
See The Festival Arena for more details.

The Festival Arena is found in the basement of Thorin's Hall.

This arena is also know as "Thorin's Ale-hall" and it is reached either from Thorin's Hall Inn or directly from Thorin's Gates. The latter is via an entrance just at the mailbox next to Bogi Deepdelver, a perfect short-cut to the Inn.

The Festival Arena is used during Anniversary Celebrations and certain Special Events. The rest of the year the big hall lies dark, unused and in silence, except for the occasional gurgles from the many ale barrels.


"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
