Mithril Hall's creation, like many areas in the Realms, is rooted to Vl'aresch's whim. Long ago, the Lord of Darkness created a shadow dragon, which he named Shimmergloom, who unleashed havoc upon the races of Light. The fearsome beast, aided by mighty shadow hounds and dread clerics, brought about thirty years of pain and sorrow. It was then that the legendary Daskyn arose. This heroic man, whose name will be forever remembered in song, drove back the dragon, tracking it back to its lair in Garum's Gorge. There, the hero magically sealed Shimmergloom in it's lair, unable to kill it as Vl'arescht had blessed it with eternal life. The dragon's rage was unending however, and it summoned forth a torrent of servants, sending them to destroy the peaceful settlements nearby. Our good King Welmar dispatched a legion of dwarven berserkers to end this shadowy obstacle. With the aid of the human Cattie-Brie, the dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden, the barbarian Wulfgar and many others, the keep of Mithril Hall was founded, resting near the steep cliff face of Garum's Gorge. The battleragers of the keep maintain a vigilant guard, ensuring that the followers of Shimmergloom shall never arise from the canyon.
