The Onyx Throne
The Lands of the Linnorm Kings, sparsely inhabited as they are, nonetheless stand as direct gateways between Varisia and the Crown of the World. Because of this, dwarves are no strangers to the idea of making perilous journeys, familiar as they are with travelers making their way through the unforgiving lands. Copper is one of the most prevalent trade goods to come out of the Lands of the Linnorm Kings, drawn out of the vast mine in Kopparberget. The metal is often shipped south to Varisia, where it is refined in the vast halls of Janderhoff before being traded to traveling merchant caravans. Dwarven mercenaries and warriors are often hired as caravan guards for traders headed either south to Varisia or across the snowy mountains of the north. This life of traveling may inspire dwarves prone to wanderlust, and the hardy members of this race are particularly suited to the hardships of caravan travel.
