Knowledge, Dragons, Gods, and Revenge
Population 1,458,370 (87% dwarf, 8% Human, 4% Gnome), this is a territory of mountains and desert. The rivers tend to run to the east of this territory leaving it dry and mostly uninhabited. However the northernmost mountains are full of rich minerals and the dwarves have settled in. There is a city that exists entirely in The Korim Mountain. The Korim dwarfs are evil and greedy seeking only the minerals that lie in the mountains. Those bold enough to travel often become slaves in this mountain and never see the sun again. There are other mines from which surrounding cities gain there minerals but they are smaller and mostly commercial. There are some scattered communes in the desert near the oases. The largest of these communes is the Palient commune which inhabits less than 10,000 people most of whom follow Razsla the god of nature. Somewhere in the desert also exists a large temple of Dermitar though this temple is said to move. The followers often go into the communes and bring people (mostly women and children) back to torture them and serve Dermitar in ways that are too terrible to imagine. They call themselves the Torturionary or the Tors.
