Exile to Graystone
The mountainous lands that lie to the North of The Empire known as Gundinor are home to the Dwarves. Much of the population lives in great holds carved into the mountains themselves, while smaller clans make their livings farming, mining, trapping and hunting in small outposts among the peaks. Twenty-five years ago, a massive Orc invasion swept out of the mountains and hammered the Dwarven holds. Though they put up a strong defense, the Orcs were only driven off with the help of the Imperial Legion. Now, many of the Southern holds have Imperial residents as well as Dwarven, a development some of the more insular Dwarf kings find unsettling.
