The River and Tree
The Dwarven Empire
Deep within the northern mountains sits the dwarven empire. Massive cities in complex networks of caverns and tunnels fill these mountains. The dwarves created the warforged to do their working and their fighting with the gnomes, seeing them as little more than tools. For decades Warforged were viewed in dwarf society as tools and treated as such, until the Second Great Calamity when they demanded their freedom. Since then, Warforged have been integrated into Dwarf society as paid workers and have helped make it the industrial powerhouse it is today.
