This structure is the equivalent to the Dwarven Tower of the Iron Hills and Erebor. It spawns (albeit rarely) in the Blue Mountains and consists largely of Sarlluin brick, a material that can only be found in the Blue Mountains.
This level contains two sleeping rooms to the sides and an ore storage room at the end. The sleeping rooms contain two Dwarven Beds, a double-chest with food and other dwarven items, ranging from Dwarven Steel to tools and weapons to armour. The ore storage contains some placed ore blocks chosen randomly from a list of iron, tin, copper, silver or gold.
The topmost floor is the where the Blue Mountains Commander spawns. It has pillars instead of walls so you can look out in any direction.
The Stronghold is inhabited by one Blue Mountains Commander who spawns on the third floor and ~4 Blue Mountains Warriors or Blue Mountains Axe-throwers who spawn on the second floor. Both the commander and the soldiers tend to wander around the structure a bit.
Use as a baseEdit
Blue Mountains strongholds can make a good base for players allied with the Blue Mountains. They offer a good view in all directions, quick access to a Blue Mountains Commander, four naturally spawning warriors and axe-throwers for protection, and lots of space to put storage chests. If players need even more space to put stuff, expansion underground and/or building a mineshaft under the stronghold is a very dwarf-appropriate option.
