    Mount Duergar was a mountain west of Cornelia that the Dwarves called home. They peacefully lived in caverns carved into the mountain. The Warriors of Light visited Mount Duergar and the famous Dwarven engineer, Nerrick, shortly after defeating Astos and returning peace to Elfheim. They brought him Nitro Powder, which he used to complete his canal, linking the Aldean Sea to the outside waters. They later returned to bring the legendary metal Adamantite to Smyth, the renowned Dwarven blacksmith. He forged the mighty blade Excalibur for the heroes, to aid them in their journey to restore the light of the Crystals.

GAME INFO
    Mount Duergar is located west of Cornelia and can only be accessed by Ship (or by Airship later in the game).

NAME ORIGIN
    Mount is used in the placename for mountains, it comes from the Latin word mons. Duergar is the collective name for dwarves, particularly those in the folklore of the Simonside Hills of Northumberland in northern England. The word derives from the Old Norse name for dwarves, dvergar. Duergar are also a race of dwarves present in the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game.
    In the original NES release, Mount Duergar was known as the Dwarf Cave. Dwarves are mythical creatures found in Northern European folklore. They were said to live underground and in caves, and were famous for their craftworking. The word comes from the Old English dweorh. A cave is a hollow in the earth, especially one opening more or less horizontally into a hill or mountain. The word comes from the Latin cavus, meaning "hollow".
