Helmsdale was a small farming town found in Soravia on the border with Brandiar.[1][2]


Helmsdale rested on the banks of the Goliad River south of Ironspur.[2]


Zhengyi used Helmsdale as his base of operations for the entire duration of the Bloodstone Wars. Because of this many Damarans often referred to the town as "the cursed village".[1]


This small farming community hosted a population of 500 inhabitants who produced food in support of the dwarves of Ironspur. The population swelled to 4,000 when Zhengyi's forces occupied the town. Only 78 of the original inhabitants survived to see the Witch-King's defeat.[1]
