Dwarftown is located around level ten or eleven of the Caverns of Chaos. It is one of the only "safe zones" in the CoC, and many players use it as a base of operations for most of the game. No hostile monsters are ever generated in Dwarftown, except during one particular quest.

Main FeaturesEdit

Dwarftown features a miscellaneous items shop owned by Waldenbrook, a forge owned by Glod, and an alter, which is looked after by the priest Ruun, who is always the same race as the player. If the player is Lawful, then the alter will be generated as a lawful alter. If the player is Neutral or Chaotic, the alter will be neutral.


There are a number of important NPCs residing is Dwarftown, as well as a few less important ones. Note that attacking any resident of dwarftown will cause Muscular Dwarves to be summoned in great numbers, meaning it is a very bad idea to anger these dwarves unless you know exactly what you are doing.


Main Article: Thrundarr

Thrundar the Ancient Dwarf is the Elder of Dwarftown, and the assigner of seven different quests. He is the only NPC in the game that gives you the ability to type what you want to say to him.

He has six quests available in sequence, one after the other. He also has a quest to Put Griff Bloodaxe to rest, the reward for doing so is that Thrundarr will unlock the lower section of the CoC for the player to explore.

It should be noted that is it not strictly necessary to do the Portal Quest in order to advance. There are ways to remove Thrundarr from where he is standing, meaning the player can "H"andle the Portal Lever themselves (which will open the lower part of the CoC).
