The Twin Kingdoms
The majority of the Dwarven people of the land live on the east side, in the foothills and low Mountains of the Spine of the World. A sombre and stern people, there is an almost innate distrust of Humans as a short-lived and flighty race, despite how closely the two races have worked together for many centuries. A common Dwarf complaint is that by the time they finally get to know and trust a human, the human has gotten too old and retired.
Each Dwarven Clan is ruled by the head of that Clan, and the full Council of Seven guides the Dwarven people as a whole.
