The northern Underdark also holds one of the few good-aligned Underdark cities, Blingdenstone. Currently being considered for membership in the Alliance of Silverymoon, the Blingdenstone gnomes will likely need the alliance. They live in close proximity to Menzoberranzan and the duergar city of Gracklstugh. While the drow and duergar generally ignore the gnomes, both have recently rediscovered them as a potential target. Over to the east, Ched Nasad uses its wizards along with its priests to fight opponents in every direction.
Rulers Blingdenstone is ruled by King Schnicktick (LG male svirfneblin F9), the twenty-first hereditary monarch of the Royal House of Sonndersong, and Queen Fricknarti (NG female svirfneblin F8/I119), his wife. As in all aspects of svirfneblin society in Blingdenstone, governance is strictly divided between the sexes. The king and his advisory council of seven male deep gnome elders oversee Blingdenstones mining operations, defenses, and contact with the outside world, while the queen and her advisory council of seven female deep gnome elders govern food production and day-to-day life of the city.
It is named for the slightly mad human wizard, Brister Fendlestick, who possessed Daerns instant fortress, a magical edifice that could shrink to the size of a small cube or grow to form a tower with smooth metallic walls 20 feet square and 30 feet high.

Brister was eventually slain by Clacker, a pech he had transformed into a hook horror, before he could reverse his polymorph other spell.
