THE DWARVEN CLANS OF NYBELMAR

KIINGERIM - KAVOGERIM

There exists a variety of dwarven clans in the world of Caelereth. The most important ones at the Continent of Nybelmar described below (sorted alphabetically):

The Kiingerim Clan

KIINGERIM CLAN, THE ("HIGH DWARVES")
The Kiingerim Dwarves (loosely translated from the Thergerim tongue as "High Dwarves") were once the one of the great powers of Nybelmar, but due to the War of The Chosen the mountain cities of the Kiingerim were destroyed and today they can only be found in the city of Tyr Faerath. These are true survivors and are very proud of their history because of the fact that they changed their traditions and life styles less than other tribes.

They are more competitive than other dwarven tribes and the goal of their life is simple. To have as much money and wealth as they  can. The Kiingerim have taken, with help from their cousins, the Kavogerim (Plain Dwarves), more and more control over the trade routes of Nybelmar. In the south they are the undisputed rulers of continental trade, much thanks to the location of the city.

KAVOGERIM CLAN, THE ("PLAIN DWARVES")
Also called the Nybelmar Plain Dwarves (lit. "KavoHoonHol", Thergerim or
KavoHoonHol Thergerim, "Dwarves of Desert Travel"). Working as caravan warriors and trail guides rather than smiths, these tough but stunted dwarven clans have had to make many adjustments to the ‘traditional’ dwarven society as their Santharian cousins know it. Driven from their once-vast mountain caverns and forced onto the dry plains of central Nybelmar, they had no access to metals or forge fuel, and took up the mercenary life of protecting human trade caravans from the orcish raids, a job which they do with grim enthusiasm and deadly skill.
