A Pleasant Sort of World
The Black Peaks
The Black Peaks refers both to a long thick stretch of mountains populated by dwarves and orcs and to a powerful dwarf metropolis.
The city known as The Black peaks is a place of splendor but also of smog and dust. The dwarves mine ore + coal from the mountains, and they heat massive forges where they craft great weapons and other metal works. The great Iron Citadel stands as the main entrance to the city; this massive church of Moradin, crafted out of intricately forged iron, is the first taste of the wonder, beauty, and oppressive dimensions of the city.
