War of The New World
There is only one group of people that the Empire openly trades with and that is the Dwarves. Dwarves are a strange short folk who live in an area far to the Northeast of the Imperial mainland. Among their stout feature they are also brilliant inventors, and much like the Empire they don’t allow spellcasters into their kingdoms. The problem with the Dwarven trade is that it inspires the insane to constantly create, and seek new, and often times unstable technologies. These inventors are often credited to exploding laboratories, and loud noises of machines working throughout the night. Some even speculate that it is because of these inventors that some plagues such as the undead plague was sprouted from chemists attempting to find “energy for living beings”.
There are several Dwarves who even live in human lands so that they may make trade easier for their people. Often times it is due to greed that they choose this path since they’re usually the ones getting the most money, and find the biggest suckers amongst humans.
