The Kingdom of Light
The Dwarven Jarldoms
The massive, frost-ridden mountains of the Westreach are home to the warlike and staid people known as the dwarves. They are known as as mighty warriors, with little tolerance for weakness and idleness. Theirs is a more primitive culture – they build no cities, and have a proud oral tradition of sagas, sung by their warrior-poet bards. They worship an ancient pantheon of gods, known for their gloomy outlook on life and belief in an inevitable apocalyptic battle they call the Rag-nar-ok. They have long fought a war with a nameless Enemy on the other side of the mountain – when pressed for information on the subject; the Dwarves are notoriously tight lipped. They have fractious relations with the kingdom of light, though they get on well with the House Frost.
