Dwarven Culture

The Dwarves of the Pricipalities as a reserved people, politeness is a virtue as a entire race of people who live in close proximity to each other. It is especially important as honor duels are a perfectly acceptable way to solve disagreements.

Dwarven nobles families were formed by King Fortitude in the beginning of the Kingdom, they were overseers and managers during the building of the Kingdom and were compensated with a title when it was completed (although some say that some more of King Fortitude’s children who were not made heirs were given a noble title as well). Dwarven Nobles are often in charge of a managing a social service or sub-district of the Principalities and gain their money from taxes for those. Noble families are expected to protect and shelter those under their care and keep production and productivity high.

Nobles dress in fine clothes and ususally have one ceremonial, but still battle ready, weapon on them. Their beards (as even female mountain dwarves have beards) are usually bedecked with jewelery that shows their family name, which Prince they hold allegience to and the primary focus of their house. Female dwarves also decorate their hair with trinkets which tell an epic event from their houses history.

Common dwarves do not have the same extravagent dress but they do still decorate their beards. These decorations show their allegience and job as well as anything they may be famous for. The metal used for the decoration shows how highly ranked a dwarf is in their occupation.

Seekers are considered an oddity, they still hold whatever alligiences they held before and the same station but they also swear allegiance to the High Seeker. While it has never caused any issues before, not many dwarves trust a Seeker due to their split loyalties.
