Kelvernia: A Dungeon Crawl Classics Campaign
The Dwarfs of Kelvernia were never a common sight in the lands of men. After the pogroms pursued by the Sulati Empire, they nearly disappeared entirely. It is unknown whether they were slaughtered or merely retreated to their holdfasts in the Spear Mountains.
As human miners began to encroach upon the dwarfs’ territory, tensions between the dwarfs and Cramond increased. Finally, the dwarfs agreed to begin trading ore to humans in exchange for promises that men would not mine near their holds.
There are four major dwarf clans and several smaller ones. All of them are based in the Spear Mountains, spread out among their seven ancestral strongholds. Exact numbers of the dwarven population aren’t known, as most dwarfs spend nearly their entire lives underground, away from non-dwarf eyes.
