Serious thread necromancy - sorry people but I needed to see if there was anything usable and didn't want to have to navigate back to page 17 of the Races and Tribes Forum to find this post again!

Possible influence on the undeveloped Morgerim if there are any ideas that can still be gleaned....

Thanks to Valan's gravedigging and Tharoc's poxy scriving, the Morgerim/Black Dwarves are going to get let out of the closet - at least, we'll give it another try....

Currently I have Influenza B, so feel rather orcpoxed myself.   We shall see how events develop.

1st Origins:

If we were to keep the Dark Dwarves in Caaehl'heroth, they'd no doubt live under the Caaehl Mountains. This region is undeveloped at the moment, so fitting them there is easy. And, it would explain where they came from when they were made to help build Osthemangar. The theory could be that the Morgerim and the orcs were the two main tribes in Caaehl'heroth in ancient times. Perhaps they were at war, or perhaps they had a tense co-existence.

But, along came the dark elves from ruined F'v'cl'r. These elves were advanced, powerful and quickly enslaved the more primitive orcs and dwarves as laborers. However, the War of the Chosen, Battle of Osthemangar, the Mists and SWIII eventually drove the dark elves in the region to extinction and a good number of Morgerim. The orcs, on the other hand, survived and thrived.

2nd Origins:

Or...the Morgerim are a tribe split from the Susilgrim or Kurakim due to disease? Curse? War? and migrated to the Gathorn Mountains. Maybe they took up trade with the Remusians and/or Antislar. They could have sided with the orcs in the orcen wars against the humans (evil dwarves! You know you want them!) Ice Dwarves! Maybe they made friends with the mythical icicle monsters and learned to communicate with them.

No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith. And that, I fear, for any reasoning, conscious being, would be the cruelest trick of all.

Can we work the Orcpox angle as the disease in Option #2?  They were ravaged by disease and moved to the Gathorn Mountains(driven or maybe even self sacrificed themselves for the betterment of the tribe) and are called Black Dwarves because of how they look, not necessarily evil.  Though, evil dwarves would be cool somewhere!

I like the monstercicle connection.  Perhaps we can have the dwarves release the icicles from an underground imprisonment either on purpose or accidental, whether real or in myth.  If they are in the Gathorns, I wouldn't want them evil evil... just misunderstood, perhaps.  I would lioke to tie them in with Kor'och when he went into the mountains for years on his own, as well as maybe helping with the cave temples that were in vogue for a number of years back then.  Also, perhaps it was the dwarves that helped Kor'och find Shangri-la (yes, I know I really need to come up with a name for this :P).

As far as SW III, maybe have them be nuetral.  And the Remusians not forgiving them for not helping against the orcs.

Maybe they had something to do with Ombaxxis, the lost Remusian city.  Though, might have to see what Shabby has been planning.  He had made a tentative claim on Ombaxxis awhile back.  Hmmm... maynbe helping with building it, or maybe having something to do with its abandonment.

So much potential. :)

No evil Thergerim!    But I like both of Azhira's suggestions....   and I definitely want to use orcpox as the historical 'origin' for the Mor-dwarves.   

You guys write the history (my weak point) and I will happily do the rest of the entry for their culture.
