Around what once was a small community has a hamlet of 374 adults grown up. The centre of the community is still the old, large stone manor where Randal Morn and the Freedom Riders used to assemble. Nowadays, Randal Morn is rarely seen in this parts of Daggerdale. Instead, he has appointed Adlon "the Fardelver" Brightblade to Dell Lord of Freemarch Dell to handle the tasks of governing in Daggerdale south of Dagger River.

Anathar's Dell was founded by dwarves of the Brighblade Clan c 1266 DR. With time, elves, humans, and halflings settled in the dell. In the Year of the Tankard (1370 DR), Randal Morn appointed Adlon "the Fardelver" Brightblade to the office of Dell Lord of Freemarch Dell, that is, Daggerdale south of the Dagger River.
Fardelver" Brightblade, as Dell Lord of Freemarch Dell, and chieftan of the
Brightblade Clan in a dwarven dominated settlement, he is the unquestioned
"leader". He has has 7 full-time (100 hours per tenday) men-at-arms (1
captain, three lieutenants, three private) at his service. In addition, he has
established a militia force of 37 members, where each militia member is required
to serve 20 hours per tenday.
Anathar's Dell is protected by the "fangs" and Adlon's men-at-arms and militia. If the hamlet is under attackm then all able-bodied villagers will defend the community.
The Blacklocks, a human family, have lived in the dell for a long time. They are descendants
The Snowgolds, a half-elven family, have lived in the dell for a long time
The Talops, a human family, have lived in the dell for a long time
The Winterwoods, a half-elven family, have lived in the dell for a long time
Some of the Daggerdalesmen of Freemarch Dell feel that they have been overruled by Lord Randal Morn's appointment of Adlon "the Fardelver" Brightblade as Dell Lord of Freemarch Dell. The Daggerdalesmen of south Daggerdale have always ruled themself, and they think that they have the right to select their own leaders and spokesman.
Some of the villagers of Anathar's Dell feel that Adlon "the Fardelver" Brightblade is too harsh, and that he makes a poor leader. There are too many new laws, too many guards, too many militia members, and so on.
