The World of Rendil
Deep beneath the Anteer Mountains the fires of dwarven forges blaze as its anvils ring. Carved directly into the caverns beneath the range, the Kingdom of Stonehearth is a massive monument to dwarven stonework. The buildings run along a downward slope are carved directly the rock. A river of magma run beneath its cliff-side face. The dwarves have developed an ingenious method of channel the magma to heat and lit its districts and pathways through a series of ducts and channels. Its population is exclusively dwarves, bound by ancient clan rites. Despite this tendency towards isolation, its fine goods are highly sought after. Neighboring nations are willing to pay a premium price for dwarven craftsmanship.
King Stonebreech IX holds court in Stonehearth’s mighty arching hallways. He rules with an iron fist, exiling those he perceives to be enemies without hesitation or mercy. His oppressive regime stretches back over many generations of previous rulers, since the dwarves excised the humans from their caverns. During the time of the Kordil Empire, humans forced the dwarves to mine deep into the Anteers. When the empire fell, the dwarves lead a revolution that cast all the other races from their caverns. Using the mines they carved the founded a kingdom within the stone. Since then the Stonebreech Dynasty has ruled the stone city.
