Hammerheim is a federation of five dwarven holds, united under High King Gundar Hammerfist, the ruler of Hammerfell. The five holds largely rules themselves, but share tax- and foreign-policy. All five holds are connected through an extensive and well-guarded underground tunneling system, enabling fast reinforcement of threatened holds.
Life and Society[edit | edit source]
The holds of Hammerheim largely governs themselves, but are nominally ruled by the High King of Hammerfell, Gundar Hammerfist. The kings of the holds or their representatives meet with the High King in Hammerfell every summer to make decisions that influence all the holds, such as taxes or punitive expeditions. In times of crisis or war, the kings submit to the High King.
The dwarves are divided into clans, who specializes in some trade or skill, be it gemcutting, blacksmithing or mining. These clans are spread across all five holds, with a few living outside the holds and visiting only to pay their taxes and sell their goods.
Major Geographical Features[edit | edit source]
