Punduk’s Code was a law code instituted in ZY71 by the radically traditional Punduk, second emperor of the Dwarven Empire. The code enslaved Goblinoids as serfs, outlawed the Goblinoid language, codified the caste system as binding upon all Dwarves, and set up the Pundukan as elite enforcers of the Dwarven Law-scriptures. As a result, literacy effectively ceased in the Empire. Punduk’s Code was overturned by the third emperor, Chandara II, and replaced by Chandaras Code. While the latter was far more liberal, it still retained certain influences from the former, such as the serfdom of Goblinoids and the outlaw of the Goblinoid language.
Today, Punduk’s Code is a veritable byword for repressive, draconic rule and radical traditionalism.
