Reign of Hazards
Realms - Eastgate
The eastern entrance into the Vale of Talanor, Kahae Edhekal is a ruled by a council of noble families and supported by a massive standing militia along with the clerics of Mylesar, Teysura and Valthyra. Deep beneath realm lies the abandoned Lower City overrun by fire goblins and flame drakes.
From the Dragon Gate, an ancient defensive structure leading into the valley of Talanor, a winding, flame-bricked road, known as the Dragon Road, leads to Oldtown within the Vale. Within Kahae Edhekal, the Dragon Road traverses the mountain to arrive at the far eastern exit, The Mountain Tower. Defenses of the Kahae Edhekal at the Dragongate are under the command of Katadante Ironhelm.
The dwarves of Kahae Edhekal regard themselves as proper dwarves with a healthy respect for family. As such, they have copied the elves of Greyton and organized themselves into Houses. Wealth and property distinguish the “nobility” of a House with the greater Houses building their complexes either several layers above or below the main passage through the mountains. House-less dwarves are considered commoners that either perform manual labor or enter the military. A burgeoning middle class of tradesmen has appeared over the past millennium with the more successful of these forming new Houses.
Kahae Edhekal is ruled by the aristocracy in a loose alliance of complex relationships and contracts. The church of Mylesar acts as a mediator and, at times, judiciary for the Houses.
Trade within Kahae Edhekal is strong with most things, including food and water provided from within.
With the exception of wood and plant-life, materials within Kahae Edhekal are plentiful.
The legend of Mithril being mined within the Shadow Mountains is ever present although not a cart full has been seen in generations.
Each district maintains their own armies with the Dragongate being the larger by far. Soldiers are broken down into companies and assigned a name such as Dragongaurd, Wyrmguard, Gryphonguard, etc. Their armor is distinguished by the emblems worn on their shields and colors of their tabards. Both armies employ an elite group of rangers for exploring the vast caverns of the Lower City that has been overrun for centuries.
Emboldened by the prowess of Mylesar, the Warrior, these clerics greatly influence the rule of Kahae Edhekal.
These priests and priestesses of Teysura, the Sacred Mother heal the wounded and lay the fallen to rest.
These blacksmiths are dedicated to Valthyra, the Faithful.
