The Dwarves

The Kingdom of the Dwarves lies far to the north, beyond the Crystal Lake, which is the source of the Narakhris river which runs through our fair city. Their great city is called Nara-Taal, most of which is underground and has never been seen before by human or elvish eyes. The surface areas of the city are elaborately sculpted out of the bare rock, and all entrances to the city are eqipped with huge stone gates that can be moved to seal the city off from attack.

The Dwarves do not worship as we do, honoring only Kha'taal who created them, and their ancestors, who protect them in battle. And the Dwarves see much in the way of battle. The Orcish tribes attack their borders in cyclical waves, retreating every winter and advancing at the first thaw. For now, aided by the Empires reinforcements, the Dwarves hold the Orcs in a kind of equilibrium.

The Dwarves do not leave their homelands often, as they need every body that can hold an axe in battle to fend off the Orcish hordes, but Humans often travel to the Dwarven Holds to trade with them raw materials and supplies for the fine weapons and beautiful art works produced by the skilled dwarvish craftsmen.
