War of the Burning Sands
The dwarven settlement of KIed controls an obsidian mine in the foothills of the Ringing Mountains between Tyr and Urik. The village is built on the location of a Green Age dwarven citadel called Kemalok. The dwarves of Kled believe they are descended directly from the kings of Kemalok, although they keep this claim from outside ears lest they anger a sorcerer-king in their presumption. From time to time, miners unearth portions of the ruins of the “city of dwarf kings.” Most of the finds are enigmatic wall remnants or bits of flagged flooring heavily inscribed with angular runes. However, every so often the workers recover a crumbling relic of ancient Kemalok. There are rumors that much greater discoveries have been found but kept secret from all but the most trustworthy of the dwarves.
