The Dwarven Empire is in a Golden Age. Massive Dwarven Halls and Vaults are scattered throughout the mountains of Godsfall. They are unchallenged in the deeps, having mastered both Steel and Mythril. Some whisper that their inventors are coming up with a compound that could shatter stone or reduce the men needed to move a siege engine to one or two.
The Dwarves feel as if they have inherited the World. The are unimpressed with the world outside their mountain homes, but have done a fantastic job of creating a vast empire within the Earth. The Dwarves have a very cavalier attitude towards life at present, and unless something earth shattering happens, the odds of the dwarves losing hope is quite small.
