Homelands of the Dwarves, spread throughout the Silvertine Mountains north and east of Aquilonia. The Dwarves are an embattled culture, sharing their lands with aggressive bands of Orcs, Goblins, Giants, and some of the Cozahrs. They have also fought two major wars with the Elves of Alfaen over access to the mithril mines among the coastal mountains. Like the Elves, centuries of war and hardship have left their culture somewhat in decline. They have close ties to Aqulonia. Cultural Touchstone: Nordic.
