Reclaiming the Balfuric Lands
The continent of Tharngrom is considered the motherland of the dwarves. One possible origin for that thought is how most of its population is Dwarves with a relatively small percentage of any other race. Tharngrom is ruled by its world renowned Clans. Each clan has a metropolis that it calls home, and each clan also has a specialty craft within its mountain. Kirn Borrim is the home of the Clan of Fire. So called for its discovery and pioneering of the uses of black powder. Most working citizens of Kirn Borrim are either alchemists or gunsmiths, and they are all protective of their products in regards to outsiders. Thurnyarhum is home to the to the Clan of Lightning. The dwarves of this clan are well known and respected for their apparent mastery of enchanting items. The city is the destination that many enchanters pilgrimage to in order to learn from masters of the craft. Thurkuldor is the city of the Clan of Iron. The Iron CLan Dwarves are world class clockwork artisans. It is also home to what is considered the most intricate clockwork creation of all time. This being the Thurkuldor Vault. It was what put this clan on the radar for any and all clockwork fan. Valoran is the home for the Over clan. Don't let the name fool you though as the name only reflects that the city was built above ground and not into a mountain mine like the others. It has the most variety of races, and is the meeting place for the council of the clans.
