Dwarven society is based heavily on Clan Standing. Those clans with the most skilled craftsmen, the most deadly warriors, the most powerful clerics, and the most intelligent Councilors, become the most respected and thus the leaders of other clans. In the Angdor Mars (the Mithral Mountains), there are two such clans who rose to prominence and became the governing bodies of their nations. Clan Gnolengrom is the largest, and controls not only half of the Angdor Mars range, but a large portion of the Savanna and plains to the west, north, and south. They are known as excellent weapon and armor craftsmen, their items sturdy, well-made, and long-lasting. Their magics are concerned almost solely with the crafting and enchanting of arms and armor. Their architecture is of a very precise nature, blocky and monolithic. Their art is very angular and attempts to be as realistic as possible. The Clan is less worried about expansion and more concerned with maintaining their holdings. The chasm, home of one of six Ursai Temples across the world, is a thorn in their side, as they’ve long wanted to mine the fertile rock. All in all, Gnolengrom Dwarves are very standard, rough and tumble dwarves. They possess good senses of humor, value service to their race above even family, and craft amazing battle accoutrements.
