Motes in the Serpent's Eye
The Dwarven Commonwealth
Dwarves are a reasonable people, but they despise orcs. They hold the orcs responsible for the destruction of the Dwarven Commonwealth in the pre-Empire days. The devastation then was so horrible that it led to the Dwarven Diaspora the dwarves still talk about to this day. The dwarves hope to someday reunite under the banner of a single dwarf and re-ignite the glory of their fallen empire. Unfortunately, they spend most of their time working on increasing their personal fortunes instead of furthering the ends of their people. Only the most charismatic leader could hope to reunite such a scattered tribe.
