Tír Maith, also known as the Steel Kingdom, is a fallen eladrin kingdom formerly located in Ysbryd Forest. For three hundred years, the Steel Kingdom reigned supreme in north-western Nora.

It is commonly held that the kingdom was sacked by the lizard-like Sarkrith, but that is only half-true. The true downfall of the Steel Kingdom was its own hubris.
