Humans

Dwarves

Goldhands
GoldhandCrest.png
Description

The Goldhands are one of the elder clans within the Dwarven society, recognized as a distinguished and noble clan among the rest. The clan is made up of merchants and Dwarves with a lust for gold and money - a permanent desire to acquire vast riches. Whether it's trading or spelunking, the Dwarves of the Goldhand clan simply know how to make money.


Current Leader: Hekkaes Goldhand

Features

While Goldhands may not have literal golden hands, they usually have bright golden hair with darker colored eyes - although having brighter colors such as blue is common as well. Due to the wide variety of jobs Goldhands take up, their skin tone can vary quite a bit, with one that spends more time above ground being obviously tanner than a clan member who never leaves the mine.

Religion

Goldhands generally follow two of the Brathmordakin patrons: Armakak and Grimdugan, also known as The Merchant Brothers. A select few consider Ogradhad, The Scholar, to be one of their patrons as well. Unlike other clans that will pray before battle to better their fighting, Goldhands frequently pray to their patrons in the hope of good fortunes in their work, bringing them more wealth.

History

The Goldhands are known to have founded one Dwarven nation, Kal'Alras, which existed during Aegis, Asulon and during The Fringe. Kal'Alras was originally founded by Algoda Goldhand.

Irehearts
ireheartcrest.png
Description

The Irehearts are one of the elder clans of Urguan, said to have a direct line back to him. The clan follow in the footsteps of Kjell Ireheart, many members showing imperialistic behavior in their life with true loyalty to whoever sits on the Throne of Urguan. This clan is well-known within the community for it's battle prowess, long line of successful kings, and master tacticians.


Current Leader: Darrega Ireheart

Features

Men within the Ireheart clan typically wear little more than pelts and warpaint, even in the most extreme conditions. Their beards are left to just grow wildly and naturally, a tribute to the gift Yemekar gave their race. On the rare occasion of a woman within the clan, they too adorn themselves with pelts and animal hides, keeping their hair braided and pushed back. Scars are a mark of honor for the Irehearts, save for any of their back - a sign of running from battle.

Religion

The Irehearts mostly follow Dungrimm - the patron of battle, valor, and honor - as their god among The Brathmordakin. Along with him, the Emperor, Paragon and Dragon Slayer Kjell Ireheart is considered a Daemon of the realm, and is a close assistant to Dungrimm, helping the god with guiding the souls of the dead and exacting justice against those who commit crimes against all of Dwarf kind.

History

The clan was first conceived under the alias “The Grim Brotherhood” during the third age when the Dwedmar suffered from de-unified numbers. This was during a time of conflict, where Dwarven clans fought one another in a desperate power struggle. The Grim Brotherhood was founded during the reign of Hiebe Irongut by three dwarves believed to have been blessed by the Brathmordakin. Gorum and Goruk Frostbeard along with Paragon Kjell Ireheart combined together to create a hidden rebellion against the supposed tyrant Hiebe. Later, after Hiebe had stepped down from the throne, Kjell Ireheart proposed a plan with the Goldhands to create a stronger and larger clan, the Stormhammers. In a misunderstanding, the Goldhand Leader, Thoak Goldhand, only believed to be aiding in it's creation, not merging the clans. As time went on, and leaders of the Stormhammers perished, the clan returned to it's previous name as the Elder Clan Ireheart. Through time and conflict the Ireheart clan has remained strong.

Irongrinders

Description

The Irongrinders, while a notable clan within Dwarven society, are considered a Great Clan rather than an Elder Clan - meaning that while they do descend from Urguan, they don't have a "Son of Urguan" like the Elder Clans. They are the only clan to have risen from commoner to great status, making them quite the special case. The Irongrinders are considered to be tough and intelligent, often climbing the ladders of their respective fields quickly and efficiently. They're skilled in mercantilism, literacy, and combat. One of their main skills, however, resides in engineering and redstone.


Current Leader: Mafraedon Irongrinder

Features

For Dwarves, the Irongrinders are taller than most, and generally have a brownish or red coloring to their hair. Their lineage has caused a small amount of debate, but it's generally accepted that the clan descended from both mountain and cave dwarves.

Religion

Within the Brathmordakin, the Irongrinders typically follow one of two patrons: Ogradhad and Armakak, the Lore Master and the Merchant Father, respectively. Ogradhad represents scholarship and invention, pushing the Irongrinders to invent and innovate. Armakek, the Merchant Father, inspires his followers within the Irongrinder clan to be hard working and clever in what they do.

History

Clan Irongrinder dates all the way back to Asulon as a common clan. The clan has had it's hardships, breaking up and reforming on Anthos. In the past, there have been a few Irongrinder's to take the throne of Urguan, the first being Dizzy Irongrinder. As the capital moved through the different realms, the Irongrinders followed. For a brief period on Anthos, the founder of the Irongrinders, Zahrer Irongrinder, married Riddeth Thunderfist, and together rebranded the clan as Thunderblade. Relatively shortly afterwards, Riddeth succumbed to the plague, and the clan retook it's former name, Irongrinder. On Athera, during a time of crisis for the Dwed, involving murders, disappearances, and kidnappings, Zahrer rose up. Escaping his own captors, he saved the Grand King (Fimlin Grandaxe at the time) and helped retake the Dwarved capital, and regathered the Irongrinders within Kal'Karaad. Following this, he won the election and was the second Irongrinder to take the Throne of Urguan. From there, the clan simply grew and existed, increasing their numbers and sustaining themselves through time.

Ironguts

The Irongut Clan, one of the longest living clans of the Dwarves, and true cave dwarves at heart. Since the reign of Urguan himself, many influential Ironguts have played vital roles in the ever-changing story of our world, including Kings and Lords, indeed, even an Ascended among their ranks. Whether seen forging great weapons for the Kingdom, extracting the treasures of the cavernous depths, or harnessing the great magical forces of the world, the Ironguts have always been a strong and important clan of the Dwarves.
