The town of Strong Steel is a purposeful misnomer. The old artificers spent most of their time producing excellent weapons, gates and fortifications for the underworld. Most of the town itself, was only crafted from medium to low standards
The climb to this side city looks ominous but is actually not that hard to traverse. It was however, highly publicized to discourage would be conquerors. This however, was a colossal failure.
In fact many times subhuman races have raised the city. In so much it seems to be a right of passage to sack this city. Due to the rubble and rebuilding the entrance to the underworld has been lost.
