Its workshops are where Paragon Hirol conceived his famous improvements to [[golem]] resilience and power, and where Hirol's favorite student developed a method for storing refined [[lyrium]] that is still used centuries after its conception.

This didn't last long however, as it fell to the [[darkspawn]] during the [[First Blight]].<ref>Based on the icon's description while viewing the [[World map (Awakening)|World map]].</ref> According to [[Voldrik Glavonak]] the dwarves of Kal'Hirol had almost finished the construction of dwarven barrier doors which would have kept them safe from darkspawn for years to come. However they didn't manage to finish the door mechanism in time.<ref>Mentioned at the end of [[It Comes From Beneath]] quest.</ref> As the dwarves of Kal'Hirol were evacuating the thaig, five hundred [[casteless]] were left behind. [[Dailan]], feeling that the guard would fail to delay the horde enough, proposed to the casteless that they join with him in the suicidal battle, and suggested they prove that they were not worthless as dwarven society claimed. Despite opposition amongst some of the casteless, approximately two hundred volunteered for the duty. It is not known what happened to the others though at least a few attempted to find a route to the [[Surface dwarves|surface]].

With the fall of Kal'Hirol a lot of dwarven smithing knowledge was lost too.<ref>Mentioned by [[Sigrun]] when viewing the thaig, near the [[Knotwood Hills]] entrance.</ref>
