Claimed by King Joto of Shynabyth, the Byth Mountains are also home to the dwarven Kingdom of Draska and many deep gnome clans. Draska and Shynabyth are on amicable terms and are currently under a treaty of mutual protection. The primary concern of the dwarves is the raiding Slen berserkers who have proven to be a far more dangerous threat than the orcs they displaced. The dwarves have provided Joto with arms, armor and infantry for battling both Slen and Paru’Bor. A few cowed tribes of humanoids migrated here in the wake of the rise of the Theocracy of Slen, but little has been heard of their activities in recent years.
