The World Lore'un
The origin nation that began The War of the Shattered Thanes entirely would be Vulkran. Seeking a distribution of political power, improved avenues of trades through the crafts of alchemy, artillery and machinery were the reasons the request of Vulkran were heard within the Great Hall of Uldenoath before Berith Cinderblood himself. Yet these views were seen as dishonorable and misguided, the crafts of dwarfs shouldn’t be sold for others to emulate and rob from their people but rather to stay a trade secret for times of war; as was the accumulation of gold a tainted ideal. Insulted, the Nation of Vulkran lead a revolt that splintered the Embershot Empire forever. Vulkran often challenges the views of the empire still today competing in many honor skirmishes for their views of a better empire. The Banner of Vulkran is a deep blue with a golden mole flaring it’s teeth.
